Hope this helps.

This is what I was really trying to say without going there. A more modern designed cruising boat such as referenced above will IMHO make a better cruiser for most unless you want the 'traditional' look etc. then buy your boat and don't worry about the performance. Had a friend who owned and lived aboard a Tayana 37 and then upgraded to a Passport 40. He was shocked at the sailing performance difference.

So have fun and go sailing
