Re: Cat 25

Just for reference, the 27 is also trailerable. I think you mentioned that you don't really have a strong tow vehicle; if you're paying someone anyway, the difference in cost is likely to be nominal. And there are professional boat movers who will move it for you if you don't want/can't find a trailer.

Once you've owned one for a while, there are significant differences between a Hunter 25, C25, C250, Capri 25, H25.5, S2 7x/8x, O'Day 25, etc. As you're just starting out, will you see/understand/appreciate them? Maybe not. But, for example, the C25 has a "pop-top" that converts the majority of the settee area of the cabin into standing headroom while you're at the mooring (don't want to use it under way unless you want to lose a finger or get a concussion). When closed, though, at 5'10" I had to slouch/hunch over.
