Need Opion about boats...
Nothing wrong with discussions on aesthetics. Its always subjective and is a personal choice. Any way, what might be attractive to one person might not be to another. I do agree with *most* of what NaughtyCat says. Though I understand the comment about "girly" interiors if the boat show host put stuffed animals all over (lol). They do have woman selling these things often . But I really don''t think the interiors of a lot of these boats are that different.
acmecoyote, If you have a bigger budget then I would pick the Hylas considering your requirements. I think there is a much better layout for living on and still a nice boat to be sailed a few weekends and very capable of major trips.
