How many people are going to be on the boat, and for how long? If it's just you, then I would suggest the Pearson 30 would about the best of the lot. I spent a long weekend on one this past summer and I was very impressed with how that boat sailed. However, it's pretty small for a 30' and would be OK for 2 people, but I think it would great right for even two people after an extended time.

You didn't write what you are really looking for, but I would guess there are lots more boats for you to consider, like Catalina 27 and 30, O'day 28, 30, Newport 27, 28, 30, etc.

Good luck,
