You say 'we' so I assume you're going to have company aboard most of the time.
The motor is realistically too small for an SR4 on the Cornish coast with 2 people aboard.

The Humber would be a better bet of the two if I was pushed to say it as there's not a lot of room for 2 people onboard an SR4 console either.

However, the SR4 would be my choice with a bigger engine if it was going to be mostly solo use

So go larger. A 4m with 2+2 o fills up very quickly. It's the reason I now own a 4.7!!
