My guess would be that you can drop anywhere from 5 to 10 ft off that 37 and be very comfy.

My wife and I have been living on our boats with 3 kids for 4 years now and found that 2/3 of the crap we thought we had to have to be comfortable got pitched within the first year.

Start looking at 27 to 32 and I think you will be nicely surprised how comfortable you can be in a smaller easer to maintain and defiantly cheaper in morage and maintenance fees, and most importantly easy for one or 2 people to sail.

We are currently refitting or 34' for a 5 year voyage with the kids ages 7, 9, 11
