PS37 or PS40

Hi - my wife and are planning on cruising the pacific for a couple of years, maybe more. We gravitate towards later model Valiants and PS. the PS37 looks the most sensible (short handeling and cost) for a couple (pushing 60) but the PS40 sure looks luxrious with more space especially a bigger galley, seperate shower and occasional visitor(s). But then the size comes with a ~$100K premium. I think we could swing the $, but not sure its worth it. My wife is 5' tall and worries abit about dumpster diving the PS37 fridge tucked back in the corner.

Anyways, any comments, thoughts, or things to consider would be most welcome.

I had a 31 for 16 years and sailed everything except the 44. I crawled through and examined all of them. I did some cruising on a 37 and it is basically a small boat. Moreover, I have never really cared for a head forward layout, particularly offshore. When Crealock designed the 40, he incorporated alot of feedback on the 34/37 design and greatly improved many features. If I had stayed with sailing, the 40 would have been my "dream" boat. Nothing else compares.
