Cape Dory 30

Hello All,
We have gotten very serious about buying a Cape Dory 30 ketch. Of course if we buy it we will have it surveyed. I would like to get some input from the knowledgeable folks on this list.
Heres what I''m thinking, First I need a boat I will be able to resell quickly in about 3-4 years without loosing to much of it''s resale value. Second, I want a boat that is stable as this is going to be our family boat (if the boat has an uncomfortable motion my wife will not come along). I have taken my wife out on the boats that I race on and she has no desire to do that again.
Are there any inherent problems with this particular boat? They certainly seem to have a very good reputation and they sure are nice to look at.
Thanks
Dirt
