A few beginners questions

Hi all, my wife and I have just joined the forum and are hoping you may be able to shed a bit of light of a few questions we have.

We have just returned from holidays and have set ourselves a long term goal of living onboard a boat for a few years.

1. We have a young family and I was wondering if it were possible for a father and son (13 year old) combination to sail a large catamaran?

2. What size boat is generally considered a minimum for open water sailing? We live on the east coast of Australia and would be sailing the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef. I have been looking at the 45'-50' catamarans.

We have recently joined the sailing club and will be looking to purchase a small boat to learn on.

Thank you

Brett and J
