Turf...that is what they are built for...comfortable family coastal cruising. Check out the Catalina 36ii and 387 and the Beneteau 373Oceanis for similar priced production boats that you may find equally or more appealing.
I am not a fan of the Hunter mast rigging but I know some owners who swear by it and it is certainly a comfortable live aboard platform in either the 36 or 38. The athwartship aft double would leave something to e desired at sea, but is a comfortable way to give true two cabin room and privacy in weekend cruising situations.
Good luck with the hunt.
