I agree with AjariBonten, besides any boat you purchase is likely to need upgrade/repairs not discovered until after you sail her for a time. Maintaining and upgrading my 40 year old Irwin 32 is always a financial dilemma until I calculate the cost of replacing her with anything I like as well or better. But I have to admit, I am besotted with my boat and can hardly call myself objective or even rational!
Best of luck in your decision making,
