The smaller the boat, the faster you will learn. If your plan is to sail it for a few months and then trade up, I'd go with the Puffer or the Hobie. If your long term vision is a monohull, definitely the Puffer. If you are thinking more of a Catamaran, the Hobie. Cats handle differently from monohulls.

"It ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of sailing is? Love. You take a boat in to sea that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of worlds. Love keeps her afloat when she oughtta founder... tells ya she's hurtin' 'fore she keens… makes her a home." Captain Malcom Reynolds, Paraphrased
