Hi,
Be interested in people’s opinions particularly those of you in a similar situation.
Looking for a boat that I can go onshore and offshore on a good day for example to motiti (live in Tauranga) or penguin shoals/Tokoroa or schooner etc etc. on a really good day mayor. Have two young boys under 7. So prefer a boat I can handle predominantly myself with my wife helping me if required. Wife would like it to go to lake to do a little water sports.
I know this sounds like a pipe dream to some of you but I’m sure there are families in this situation.
I currently have a 4.85surtees workmate which obviously can’t accomodate all these options.
Have looked at rayglass 2150 soft top and Tristram 641 offshore. (Not sure a hardtop is something I’m hundred percent keen on) not sure how much overnighting will be done offshore (maybe on the lake). Also like the 6-6.5m surtees and extreme options. Opinions on all these mentioned boats and others would be appreciated.
All discussions would be awesome thanks.

Welcome to the forum.

Can i suggest you post this exact same question on the Boat Shed thread, which has all the serious boat fanatics reading and contributing to it. More expert eyes.

There are also a couple of recent threads you might find useful if you haven't seen them already. It's really useful to go back through historic threads - almost always, there have been similar questions asked.

I have a RG 2150 and live in Tauranga and what you mentioned is what our family does...
For us it’s pretty much the perfect boat, not overwhelming big but big enough to feel safe in offshore, and good to handle at the lakes...

We are also in the same situation and have a buccaneer billfisher 2008. I head to all those places including the lake and works great. Kids and wife happy = everyone happy
