There's not one perfect boat. Make a list of what is important to you. Price number one, that will limit it down or up. Also do you want a kicker (outboard engine) or a small desiel, or none at all. How much maintanance do what to do, or are willing to pay for. The main thing is what body of water you are to sail, on if its tidal you probably want to have some sort of propulsion or some where to mount it. Lake you can make due with out. Maybe you want to have an option to trailer it take that into acount. The main thing is enjoy it and do it safe. For me it was a Force 5 than a Hunter 25.5 with a Yanmar 1 GM 10 desiel in it and now it's a Beneteau 32. Point is what's right for me may not be right for you so make a list and good luck. PEACE and happy sailing.
