Jeff suggestion of the Tartan 30 is an excellent recommendation, one I would second without hesitation. You wont find the sailing experience so reduced with a T30 versus the older Pearson. Where youhave a wheel preference (one tha tI can appreciate), i would suggest you look for a C&C 30. The C&c has the same sterling qualities of the Tartan 30 but usually came with a wheel...

I owned one for six years and 30 years later still feel it the best boat I've owned...
