Sue is right on. Unfortunately you provided too little info or detail for anyone to give meaningful opinions on.
My advice is look at "Boat Search 101" on this forum. Search for other first timer boat search questions and read the suggestions given.
Make lists. Start with figuring out how you plan to use the boat and what you want it to be able to do (including Sue's remaining questions)? Example: short trips of maybe weekends, or long trips like the full summer onboard?

Then list of features: must haves, nice to haves, and DO NOT WANT.

If you take the time to do this, it will start to become clear what type of boat best fits you and your family. From there, start the actual search of the market to find the best fit. Also, on used boats, past maintenance is very important unless you don't mind either a lot of work or a relatively large added expense. Look for a boat that has been "loved" by previous owners
