I just met a couple that finished their 10,000 mile mark cruising and they had a 40'er with around 300 gallons of water aboard.
Used is prefered but not 'used up'.
Sailing performance is not high on the list. I'm in no hurry to go anywhere.
Cats make a lot of sense but I just don't want to go there.
Maximum size is irrelevant. I can find plenty of 42 to 45's that meet the requirements, I'm trying to get down to 38 to 40, if possible.
