Any particular reason for a PHRF 95-115 rating? Why not look at a boat that sails well or better than it's PHRF rating instead of a specific number.

You might want to consider a Pearson 10M. PHRF at 135/141, under 20K, club racer. Great/Solid boat. 33' LOA, 11' Beam, but LWL is 29". Boat Displaces 13K pounds, but it is quick. I routinely beat "faster" boats with it. Yesterday I passed and out ran a Sabre 362 and a C&C 35-3, both of which have a much better PHRF rating in lease than 2 NM. Winds were 10-13 kt apparent. Point-of-sail was almost close-hauled.
