My experience with a Cal 27 and a Tartan 30 are that the are good light air boats if the sails , especially the jib, are in good shape. 7 knots true will move them along ok. With your budget you could buy one in reasonable shape and repower, if you don't like the a4. If you use the a4 make sure you get a CO detector. My daughter was napping below when mine went off because of a leak in the exhaust manifold. Very glad I had it.
