Can an Endeavour 37'''' be a good boat?

I''m still in the preliminary search mode which means I''ve not looked at too many boats, but have read quite a bit of spec. information about them.

Here''s some background. We''re in out late 40s/early 50s and may retire in a few years. We''re interested in a boat that will be sailed in the Cheaspeake, but we''ll likely do some bluewater sailing too.

We''ve decided that comfort, safety, and ease of sailing are more important than speed or optimum up-wind performance. As a result, I''m looking at fairly heavy displacement boats that are not too beamy. We still need room for comfort, so 37'' LOA or so will likely be the size we''ll most consider. The age of the boat is not too critical so long as it''s been well maintained. We hope to find such a boat near us (we''re about 60 miles west of Annapolis) for under $50k.

Thanks for any input you can provide.
