It's the old story about horses for courses.
My choice of 44ft had more to do with accommodation than anything else. Of course I also wanted a strong stable boat that isn't a mission to handle and I think I have that.
What is of significant importance to us is that when we're cruising we are on anchor 70% of the time and sailing 30% of the time. When I am on anchor I don't want to live like a refugee. I want to live as closely to what I do ashore along with the comforts of modern living.
So if I can have strength and stability, ease of handling and safety in addition to a comfortable home, why would I go for a 33ft prison into which one has to shoe-horn an extra battery? It's a no-brainer for me.
