Hunter 28 really a piece of ****?

I currently have a '78 Hunter 25, and for the past two seasons it has been considered less than acceptable by the wife. Something about the cramped space. And the heat. And the lack of headroom. And the lack of a wheel.

So, time to look for something that the boss finds more acceptable. Which mostly means a double berth that doesn't end in a point. A wheel. More space. And generally a level of plushness that isn't found on very standard interior of a well aged Hunter 25.

Searching the Hunter 28.5 ('84-'87) and 28 ('89-'94) seem to be reasonable boats given the livability requirements of the wife, and well, they are still sailboats... Plus they aren't outside of the budget.

Sounds good until I find the first link on google:

So - are Hunter 28s really that crappy? And if so - what are other boats that can be found for under 20k that have the excessively plush Hunter style livability?
