seabreeze_97 is on a distinguished road
A nice example of a classic older design:
1977 Bristol 32'SLOOP Boat For Sale
No coring in that one. Encapsulated lead, never iron. Naturally, it's not the widest hull out there, but it does have 6ft headroom all the way forward. Heavy displacement and a sweet motion. Built like a tank. If you ever venture out, it'll take that too. My personal favorite, but you should get yourself invited out on different types or at least walk around and look. Newer designs have considerably wider sterns, which afford more elbow room when entertaining. It's all in what you want. It's a great problem to have....all those choices out there.
