Whatever you end up with, make sure it at least has a single quarter berth. When we compared the V32 and the Dana, we chose the Dana because it seemed to have everything the V32 offered (less the nav station) in a smaller package that felt roomier. At the time, our 3 kids were tiny, so a q-berth wasn't critical. But as they grew it became a necessity, hence we bumped up to the PSC 31, with the comfy double q-berth.

Also, I agree somewhat with your comments on the size of the PSC 34/37 compared to Westsail 32 and Mariah 31, but the latter boats usually lack the essential q-berths (I have seen some non-factory versions with q-berths, but very rarely). And I think you would find that the improved sailing performance of the Crealock designs would be hard to pass-up.

The search is half the fun!
