There are a few boats that I have researched that, although they are too small for what we need, they have a lot of room for their size and they are totally charming.

First that comes to mind is the Dana 24. It is a great boat in its size and very well built.

Next would be the Westsail 28 cutter. Great boat, although some would say that it's rather slow. Very sturdy and over-built for blue water.

Then there is my favorite of the too-small-for-me boats; the Fisher 30 motor sailer. It's a really large 30 footer, and they sell larger boats, too.

Have a look-see at those and report back!
