It would help if you said where you will be sailiing, and what your rough budget is, as well as how many people will generally be aboard. Saying that you're looking for a coastal cruiser doesn't mean a whole lot. The sailing requirements for the Chesapeake are a bit different than those of the Pacific NorthWest, which vary a bit from those of New England. Garbage in ===> Garbage out... as they say in Comp Sci classes.

Also, just kind of curious, but why 30-35' in length?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
