build quality

Maiden, I''m not familiar with the details of some of your listed boats but the Contest and Watkins span the quality spectrum in my view, the Contest being a much stronger build and very functional ergonomics. The Contest will typically come with a lower profile rig but that should suit your needs in the Trades.

Were you not seeking an aft cabin, I''d say many of your needs would be met by a Pearson 365 sloop/cutter. Lots of tankage, a stall shower, U-shaped galley comfortable main cabin and spacious cockpit - overall, a good Caribbean boat IMO.
