I've found the 33 Morgan Out Island is ideally suited for two people, but with older children, teens, the 41 seems much better suited. I agree with CaptainForce -- everyone needs some private space of their own, regardless of how small. Also, you must keep in mind that the Morgan Out Island series provides a huge amount of living space in comparison to other manufacturers of boats of the same size. The 41 Morgan Out Island is immense in comparison to my 33 O.I.. I looked at one in Virginia a couple years ago, but it needed a lot of work to make it seaworthy again so I passed on it. And, because I'm single-handing more often than not, I decided the 33 would be a better choice for me.
