New to trawlers

Hi folks,
We are a family of 5 with 3 kids 13-8 and looking to enter the world of the trawler. We started boating via the yachting world but are now looking for the flexibility and increased space and comfort of the trawler style boat. Speed and power rate low on our priorities list as we look forward to the journey as much as the destination. We are initially looking at some older boats made through to about the mid '90's in an effort to keep acquisition costs to a minimum. We live in the Brisbane waters area near Gosford NSW.
Anyway , thats us,
