81 Catalina 38 '''' Sparkman Stevens

My wife and I are looking to upgrade to a larger sailboat. We would like to live aboard. I am 6''2" tall so head room is a must. We were looking at a 1981 cal 38'' with Sparksman Stevens style - nice lines. The hull is very beamie. I understand this is a faster boat (sailing) but has only a 25hp
universal atomic. We live on cape cod and
would like to travel the canal. I understand that 38 to 50 hp is desireable to motor.
The Hull is a # 108. The cockpit is long but
narrow. the the aft is swept back and not
wide. What are your thoughts on this boat.
Asking $44k. But I think $33k would be more like it. Is the motor too small ?
What I am looking for is Room, no slug sailing, and a generally good boat.
