Trailerable

Folks around my neighborhood trailer their Catalina 27's to Huntington lake for weekend sailing. Lots of stout stuff out there under 27'. There's a Catalina 25 on local craigslist for $2,300. (not saying these are bluewater cruisers, however at least one Catalina 27 has circumnavigated.) One note of caution. The trailers are a lot harder to find than the boats. If you could find a trailer first, then you can shop bargain in-water boats from owners tired of slip fees. Otherwise, try to get a boat/trailer combo. Do not buy the boat first and then go looking for a trailer.
