Amen. We've only maxed at 11. They all sat lined up shoulder to shoulder with each other for a day sail. It actually went much better than expected, but that was a lot of work to entertain that many. The boat herself, at 22 tons, doesn't even notice we're aboard.

The advantage of having 12 seats is the room to spread out very comfortably with only 4 or 6 aboard. In fact, 8 becomes a no-brainer. When you only have 6 seats, the cockpit get cramped quickly.
