Having a broker isn't required, but will make seeing an assortment of available boats easier and more efficient to arrange for you. Since the seller pays the broker, you might as well take advantage of one (or more). Cam is right about interior space. Of the models you mention, the Catalina feels (to me) to offer the most room. You should also be able to pick one up at a reasonable cost now and sell it easily again when that time comes. Other, fancier (though perhaps better built) boats will be more expensive and slower to sell later because of their higher prices.
