My 30' Catalina was a nice boat, but my 34' Catalina offers a lot more. A gas stove/oven as opposed to an alcohol stove. A refrigerated ice box. A water heater. More battery power. More fresh water storage.
And actually, my 34' is much better equipped to single hand than my 30' was. Of course it is a newer model and came from the factory with more options than the 30 did.
