Planned use is always (or should be) a consideration in buying a boat. For instance, if you just plan on day sailing mainly, with the occasional night on the hook, then tankage and power are not as big of factors. If you plan to spend quite a bit of time away from the dock though, then they become considerations. As well as storage.

Where you plan to sail is also something to keep in mind. Obviously, you don't need an offshore boat for an inland lake. Is draft a consideration for your area?

These are the kinds of question you need to ask yourself when looking. Then you can go to somewhere like Boat Search here, or Yachtworld and input your parameters for size and price, and start to see what suits you best. Then, you can ask about specific boats.

Good luck with your search

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
