The 32 ft is 10 ft beam, the 26 is 8ft 4in or so. I've never seen one, just read about them.

I love those boats! I'd buy one in a heart beat if I had the money. I already have a truck big enough to haul the 32. That is probably the biggest truly trailerable boat.

Some have mentioned the Hunter 260. I have one. You, a wife, a 13 y/o and a 3 y/o will probably be cramped on it after a week. It would be fine for a weekend, but a week? Probably not a good idea. Does everyone get along really really reeeeeeeaally well? Nobody snores?
The aft bunk can fit two adults. A kid could sleep on one of the side cushions. A normal sized adult could take the v-berth. The 13 y/o and 3 y/o sleeping in the v-berth would cause fights.

Also, it's not a boat you can take to the bahamas willy nilly. You need a good weather window. Sometimes that doesn't happen and it's not a boat to take through a storm out on the ocean.

No side decks so if you go forward, you're climbing up on top of the boat without handrails. It can be quite an adventure!
