Re: For a family of 4 - Islander 28 vs Catalina 30

jimgo - Thanks for the updates on your search! Your story reminds me of ours, as we started with two kids on a 25er and currently sail a 28er (Irwin). Size-wise she was tight but very doable for a family of four. In fact, we spent 3 consecutive months cruising the Great Lakes in 2010 and never really felt too cramped, believe it or not. However, we now have a third daughter and are on the prowl for something bigger.

In any case, best of luck with your search!

Catalina 34
