Hi Ron,
We wanted something that had a comfortable berth for two, but was small enough that it wouldn't cost us a fortune to fix or outfit. The larger the boat the more expensive it is for slip fees and to replace sails, etc. So we decided 28-30ft would be perfect. We looked at a lot of different makes and models of sailboats before we found our boat. The Vberth is large enough for two and the cabin is quite roomy, the boat is easy to handle and I have no doubt that either one of us could sail her single handed if we had to.
Anyway who says bigger is better?
