TIGS -
My Capt and I owned a 34 ST before buying a 44 ST. Our 34 was a fantastic boat. We ran from Wash DC to NYC on multiple occasions without issues. Longest on board stay was 7 days on the Chesapeake. The 34 is "happiest" at 17 to 20 mph and mostly burns the same fuel as speed. Easy docking with bow/stern thrusters. No issues with 3 to 4, 4 to 5' seas - need to be alert in a following sea - but no real concerns.
We upgraded due to damn grandkids - 44 surely has more room and an extra head.

Good luck
