I'd agree with JohnR, based on your listed options the Cat36 makes the most sense... it's a great layout, esp for a couple, with a decent galley to boot.

The Coronado would not be listed among the world's better boats.. and certainly isn't one of the prettiest either.

Good livability, a slip that will likely appreciate, and a boat that is always in demand and a popular model seem a good mix - and a good way for you to test the lifestyle.

If it works out you can move up easily from there.
