Being 6'3", I have certain biases, but check out a few 25 foot boats. For my purposes, the Macgregor 22 cabin was useless, I couldn't sit up straight in it. That being said, I had the boat for 9 years and loved every minute. Macs are much lighter than Catalinas or O'Days. Many Macgregors were not fitted with a full complement of sail controls, are likely to be less expensive to buy and maintain, easiler to launch, retrieve and tow. The best boat is one you will sail a lot. Pick the "easiest" (how ever you define easy) one and the one that makes you smile when you look at it. The more times you turn around to look at it as you walk away, the better that boat is for you.
