Hake Seaward Yachts,
The 32 ft is 10 ft beam, the 26 is 8ft 4in or so. I've never seen one, just read about them.
I really like being able to trailer my boat and have it in the backyard in the winter.
Realistically, in my life I sail sometimes, but I can go fool with my boat in the backyard anytime I feel like it, even just for a short bit of time.
I do have a large backyard, with the ability to get away from possible falling trees. I tarped over my 24 ft with a clear plastic tarp this winter so it's bright as day under it, makes it nice to work in there.
A cabin top hinged mast tabernacle is the first thing I look for in a boat, it's a necessity for easy stepping.
