Moving on up

My boys, after five years with my 25'Seaward, want to go on more long range adventures now. They're 15 & 17. We sail western LI Sound from Manhasset to Norwalk, and want to be able to venture to Block Island, Marthas Vineyard/Nantucket, maybe up to Maine. Overnights on the hook and/or marina stays. 1-2 week trips (or longer) not out of the question.
As I often sail alone for evening jaunts, I'd like to keep the max LOA at 30'.

Been thinking about, in alphabetical order:
Bristol 29.2
Cape Dory Intrepid 9m
Hunter 30 (early 80's)
Sabre 30 (a MkI or II, Mk IIIs are out of budget, which is <$25K)

I value traditional topsides with opening ports (my Seaward has 8) and a modern underbody, wiith a skeg protecting the rudder. I want to be able to make some headway in less than 10kt breezes.

Opinions and insights? Other boats for my Yachtworld searches?
