Thoughts on a mid size cruising boat

Thanks very much for those good words of advice. It might help to provide some more information. Our budget for a boat is around 65K-70K. I also see a lot of boats advertised as race/cruisers. We donít care to race. We are more interested in a large cockpit for ourselves and guests and a nicely laid out cabin. Safety is a major concern but we donít too often find ourselves out in inclement weather, but it would be nice to know, we were on a boat that could handle any situation we might face.

Hunters seem to be well priced but I have heard very mixed things on these boats. Some love them for their affordable comforts other say their quality is poor. Is the truth somewhere in the middle? Still hoping for more options of boats to look at. Thanks again. Iím having fun with my search.
