There isn't much to go on here. Budget, intended use, mid to long term plan, etc.

If you are working your way up the food chain and can go a touch bigger, the Colgate 26 is designed to have all the sail systems of a coastal cruiser. The USNA uses them for training, I believe.

p.s. What does this have to do with cruising with children?
