I had the monohull - and decided to go multi for several reasons. I realized that we didn't really use the interior space that much and that deck space was much more important. With 2 small kids, the level sailing also appeals as a safety factor. We mostly daysail or race, and with my background in skiff sailing, the Express 37 as performance oriented as it is, didn't get the juices flowing. Way too much work and money(sails) to hit 10 knots. The new boat, a 10 year old contour 34, was just north of $50k(kinda a fixer upper) and sails along at 10 knots all day if you sail a bit free and doesn't look too bad. Kids like it too.
And yes - we're sitting in 18" of water there...
