Sorry so late to respond to this, I haven't been checking in as much as I should, but I'd like to offer a different perspective than the comments above.
I bought a Grady White Sailfish in early 2009 as a family boat with hopes the family also would enjoy some serious offshore fishing. Well, we are still enjoying it almost ten years later even though the kids are grown and our youngest just left for college. It has been an excellent family boat and blue water boat for us out of Surfside. I keep a log of all our trips. We generally make around 8-10 fishing trips per year with a third of them being overnighters at the floaters or swordfish grounds.
PM me if you would like to come down to Surfside sometime and check it out.
Here’s a few pics of the kids enjoying the boat.
