build quality

2 years later and I am still looking for a boat. Things change and my budget has gone down. Now looking at less than 60,000. I want to live aboard. No racing. prefer aft cabin. One off shore trip expected (states to the Virgins) then just island hopping. Shoal draft not necessary. Usual Virgin Island conditions have at least moderate winds. expect to single hand only to bring it to the dock for fuel,water. I am considering Watkins 36, CS 36, Contest 36, S2-11, Mariner 36. I am looking for information about the overall quality of these boats. Which one would you select? Or any other suggestions.
