Is fast worth it?

Not that I used the exact same criteria as you, but I too wanted a boat that performed a bit better. Mostly because the winds are usually pretty light in Minnesotas short summer. You didn''t list the Beneteau First 235, but it is slightly higher than your budget range (10k - 15k).

A boat that I like from your list is the S2 7.9. They''re fast, stable (don''t forget to pin down that lifting keel!!) with a large interior. It also has a large cockpit that can comfortably seat 6 adults. They are limited in headroom (5''10" I think), but seem to be a good fit for your needs.

Good Luck
