Re: Pitfalls of trading up?

I've had my Starwind 27 for three years now. Reasons I'm looking at trading up:
- I want five or six people to be able to sit in the cockpit without being cramped and knocking knees with each other, climb over each other to work the lines, etc.
- The galley sink is recessed under the cockpit, and you literally have your face pressed against the cabin wall when you're trying to wash dishes.
- I want a built-in AC system, so I can stop carrying a window unit on and off the boat two or three times every weekend.
- I want some storage and bigger gas and water tanks.

The pitfalls to these things?

MONEY!

Higher slip fees.
Higher maintenance costs.
