Alberg 30; horsepower?

I'm in the market for a small sailboat to liveaboard as i'm just out of college and have a little money saved up. I like the Alberg 30's and the Albin Vega. The Vega appeals to me b/c they generally have 10 or 12 horsepower engines as opposed to 25 or 30 horsepower that I generally see in the Albergs. I prefer the Albergs lines/looks which probably counts more than it should for me but like the idea of 10 horsepower fuel economy. What would be the result of an Alberg 30 with a 10 horsepower diesel. Is this underpowering the boat and if so what are the consequences? Thanks--Richard.
