Re: Coastal Cruising Boat Selection Help

Speaking as someone who has been there and done that to a certain degree in terms of boat buying and the whole wonderful process, being your first boat buy something like the Pearson to do what you want to do NOW, Enjoy 5 years or so of good sailing and learning, and I can almost guarantee that by the end of it you will have a much better and much more set idea of exactly what you want in a boat for more extended cruising.

I tend to think, without knowing you or your family, that 30ft might prove a bit tight for months onboard at a time.
