With a $175,000 budget you should see fit to keep your mind open. Might want to hear from those who know as per the quality of the Oceanis line compared to other Beneteau models (Jeff H had some good insight on this, I thought). By the way, I have a 27-yea-old Catalina 30 I'd be willing to sell for $150,000. You'd have a boat plus $25,000 "walkin' around money." Needs a new jib, new stove, leaks a little, standing rigging should be replaced, new deck and bottom paint, mast bent "a little," the head smells "weird," but otherwise is in super condition.
