We towed an 18' Key West w/ a 115 HP Yamaha behind our 40 foot Mainship from Florida to the Bahamas. I think its doable with a bigger boat (and the right weather windows) but you will have some hassles at marinas. (also check your insurance, they may have an issue with towing something that size). The 18 footer could be tied behind our stern and work in most slips at marinas, but it was a stretch! I think the ideal size is about 16'. My wife would bring it in and take it out when leaving and we would connect a towing rig bought from TopKnot outside the marina. We got good at it after a while, but that meant I single handed the Mainship in to marinas. But when we got to the Bahamas, man was that a fun toy to have! Really changed the cruising experience
