The Shearwater is awesome and it's a cabin rib too so you can sleep in it. If I had the money I would go for a Cabin Rib, but thats just me.
The rear bench seat is really comfortable and it turns into a dinning area too and it's also got the seating up front for the kids.
I have 5 and 6 year old children and they are fine in my Ribcraft 585 with wingback seats, but then again it is a wet boat in the wind as it has as lot of spray out the sides so when its windy it blows back in the boat. When this is the case and Trev is around then we normally put the wife and kids in Trev's Shearwater.
If you watch this video from 2:05 you will see the difference between the two ribs...
