I've owned a Hunter 30T 1992 and used to race a fair bit on a Catalina 30 (1984?)
If you want interior space and liveability I would go for the Hunter, it is a big 30 footer inside.
If you want the better quality sailboat which is also "stiffer" with less weather helm etc, go for the catalina 30.
An addtional benefit with the Catalina 30 is that there is about 7000 of them out there, hence a lot available boats and good factory / owner group support.
