I recently had an older Hunter 25.5 which I loved and moved up to a 321 Beneteau Oceanis. I also am married with 2 small children. For me and my family it the perfect sized boat. It allows me to take the family and still sail alone with out being to big, docking that is. She's 9700 lbs. If you plan on sailing solo at all I wouldn't go much larger. I find this to be at the end of my comfort level when docking in most conditions alone. You may think different.
Catalina Pearson Morgan all good choices. I also like a diesel your Cal 22 had a kicker I'm sure one more thing to consider. PEACE good Luck
