Crossing the Atlantic, and...
In roughly the year 2020, my family and I are planning on taking a year off to travel the world (not necessarily all boat-based). It's a daydream at this point, but I sometimes fantasize about doing a trans-Atlantic crossing from NA to Europe, either with my family (by that time, will be 2 daughters aged 11 and 13, my wife and myself) or, more likely, singlehanded for that leg; and then unstepping the mast to travel through Europe's inland waterways, definitely with all 4 of us aboard at that point.
So, in YOUR opinion,... what is the ideal boat that is big enough for 4 people to live aboard (cozily!) for many months, and to be able to cross the Atlantic, yet small enough/shallow enough draft to not be overly restricted in the canals of Europe?...
I look forward to reading up on some of your suggestions, I've got a few years to work on it!
