We own a tartan 30 and love it. it's a great sailing boat with reasonable accomodations for a couple or occasional guests. I've also sailed on the sabre 28 and thought it was a great little boat, very sturdy and fast for it's type, it also had reasonable accomodations for a couple although guests would have to be very good friends. The pearson 30 is a fast boat but is very tender and easily over powered. you'll be changing head sails and reefing often. The tiller on the pearson 30 sweeps nearly the whole cockpit. the times i sailed on one it seemed to be constantly in the way. Hope this helps a little. Jim
