If I had your great choice to make, I'd look hard at the Beneteau 411. Perhaps from the early to mid 90's. There are many for sale all over the place and you should look very hard at the comparison between the new 40, 393, 423 and 411. Each model has many positives going for it but for me, I'd select a fresh water 411 for less than your budget. There is a very nice one at our marina in Holland, Michigan named Errol Flynn. She is on yachtworld.
