Advice for first boat

I am just starting to sail and looking for a good first boat. I have been talking to people that I know to try and get some opinions and thought that I would now open it up to a larger forum.

My next door neighbor is a boat captain who races sail boats and has given me a few suggestions. He thought that a Pearson or O''Day would be a good starter boat but since I have always used motorboats he suggested I might enjoy a J24 better.

The boat has to be big enough for three people but small enough to handle with just one person. A engine is also a necessity because of the area where our house is.

I realize that this is a little vague but I would appreciate any feedback that you might have.
