Yep, what marty says is basically a good surmise. You really need to tabulate what kind of cruising you want. Myself I went with the 38 Barberis as I was tired of not having amenities on my Catalina 27, and I had the old boat so decked out adding the amenities -she rode about 2 inches above spec'd waterline. Beyond the increase in fees (which I never really got hit with because I rented a 38 foot slip for my 27 footer), the major challenge is in the docking and handling the high freeboard during such. So, my new one is a balance of performance and comfort while cruising...

But there sure are a plethora of options out there... you'll know it when you see it. I don't do all the races as of yet - but do participate in the Thursday Night races at Elliott Bay. More than welcome to hitch a ride...
