I hope you guys can put up with another cry for advice. My wife and I are looking for 32'-34' weekender. She'll be sailed mostly in the Sandy Hook Bay with the occasional trip to NYC harbor and a once a year trip to New England. Our buying budget is $20-25K +/-. I favor the look and design of the classic design sailboat.
On my short list are:
Any other recommendations?
Suggest you look at Mariner (NH built) 36. They can be had for just a touch above ($27-29K). They carry a bunch of room for their size. Give and take a few small issues, they are worth consideration IMHO. Good luck and good sailing.
