Need Advice on buying a used boat

I am looking to buy a 26-30 ft used sailboat no older than 1985 unless it has been refurbished. Any advice on the best manufactures for a family cruiser with a little speed. We will mainly be doing day trips or weekend jobs in LI Sound, but may end up doing a week plus on the open sea. I know Hunter, Catalina, Pearson and O'Day, but wanted to get some feedback on what people preferred. I like a rummy cabin (family of 4 plus friends), relatively easy to work, but fun to sail. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
