I like my 3.1 but have seen a 3.4 which will still fit in my garage and still be manageable to launch.
I know this is late (a year)but as the user of a 3.4m rover its a great family boat, not used the 3.1m easy to tow and launch very stable, ours has a 25hp mariner 2 stroke we found to trim the boat you need one on bow seat when 2 up (facing the engine) 1 up you do need to lean forward to get onto the plain. Very quick one up 3-4 bit slow 5 max and wont plain (well not with the 5 we had on board) will tow a ringo with a light spotter and rider will just tow a ringo with an adult in the ring. personally i would look for something that will take a 40hp motor around 4m I doubt the extra 0.3m will be much benefit, brake neck trailer may be required)
