Pearson 10M is an outstanding boat imho. My routinely beats much larger boats easily and is a dream to sail. Looking at it you'de think it was slow, 33 ft long 11 foot beam, heavy (13,000 lbs), but it has a PHRF rating of around 140. Not speedy, but a good handicap racer. Hull speed is around 7.25.

Nice an stiff, but forgiving. Can go offshore for short durations, since tankage is limited.

Can't think of others in this size range that I would rather have. Oh and the best part, you can get a one for low money.
