That sized boat is more than capable of extending cruising, but are the travellers? A friend of mine at the dock who had a 35' SeaRay Express said he was heading south. I said "where, Lake Erie?" to which he said "no... south". He actually meant the Caribbean and left for 7yrs with his wife (they had just retired). Got as far as Venezuela with that boat and its twin 454's, turned around, and headed back to Ontario. Everyone thought he was nuts, but they had the time of their lives. He sold the boat a couple of years ago (about 5yrs after his return) and had a hard time selling due to over 3000hrs on the original engines. Finally had to almost give it away. Now thats extended cruising!
