And with twins 3 months old it seems that we are staying ashore for some time.

However the trip was initially only planned from Norway to Malaysia.

Well - good that it was a positive rather than negative factor, but don't keep those young'uns shorebound. Pick up a home-schooling guide and get back out there, they'll be forever grateful to you when they are adults.

Funny, nobody mentioned the 'Contessa 32' and it is a proven BW sailor.

I kinda have a thing for Pacific Seacraft, but the Cabo Rico 38 is really nice too.

I must be getting old. There was a time when 30+ foot boats were not considered "pocket cruisers". You mentioned Pacific Seacraft, here's a list of their pocket cruisers:

Pacific Seacraft Flicka 20
Pacific Seacraft 25
Pacific Seacraft Dana 24
Pacific Seacraft Orion 27

Heading up into the 30+ foot range, many folks have heard of the Pacific Seacraft Crealock 34 and 37, but not their smaller sistership the Crealock 31 (and Pilothouse variant, PH 32). An earlier (1970's) PSC model, the Mariah 31, is also an option.

I can comment directly on the PSC Orion, since we have one. Great little boat for the money. But if you want a microwave, A/C, a blender, and all of that other stuff they pack into a floating condo, then you will have to go a little larger. But, if you want a boat that can go around the world, is small enough to easily handle, and has relatively low maint. cost due to everything aboard being smaller and simpler, then look no further. If you want those luxury items; a Crealock 37, Cabo Rico 38, maybe an old Westsail to fix-er-up would do better.

I guess "pocket cruiser" is a term relative to ones "pocket depth", among other things.

You need to remember though, that you are tempting the fates. If God had meant for us to leave sight of shore, he would never have made Catalinas !
