Apples to Oranges Xj,

You get what you pay for, in the case of Tartan's and Ericson's you pay more you get more.
My 1986 Hunter 31 (previous boat) was a very nice Ches. Bay boat worth every penny I paid for it, I know simply because that is what I paid for it.
Personally I could have lived on it, after I put 5k into the interior and some much needed maintenance it was a fine old boat worth exactly what I sold it for- again, I know that because that's what I got when I sold it.

Now, show me two boats for the exact same price, same length, same intended usage and then we can compare red apples to yellow apples.
