Baba 40s are lovely boats but I agree with Fast. If I were single handing permanently then I'd prefer to keep size down round 35'.
Its not the sailing thats the problem, its moving in and out of tight marina berths and the like. 35 is so much easier to manoeuvre than 41 if you are on your own and as Fast says, costs are going to be less.
Going on my experience of a 34'er, I found her too cramped for a couple but I could have done it one up.
ps - having just read something else .... not all 35 foot boats are created equal. Its overall size thats important in terms of living space not just length.
