sailj34c is on a distinguished road
J37 or Sabre 38MK1

We bought a j34c 4 years ago when our 3 kids were similar ages (6,4 & 6 months) and we''ve loved it. Former j24 owner/racers, we couldn''t bring ourselves to get too cruising oriented. The 34c and subsequent 35c & 37c all have more cruising amenitities than traditional j''s in their size. We only club race ours but have a ball beating the heavy cruisers in the fleet while still handling a blow better than them. Only concern I would have about the 37''s is that they put the diesel in the center of the cabin which really makes them loud down below. Good design for maintenance but not the greatest for little ones playing below. I think the 37c''s don''t have that issue.
