Reality is, in a mid 20-30' boat, there is not a lot a manufacture can do to boats to really make them standout per say, other than floor plan, and inner cabin material. And for the most part, for models like you are looking at, back in the day, there was more true wood inside than todays boats with faux wood per say. Even my 85 jeanneau has real wood, well, even todays do, but a wood fiber teak to look like real wood over plywood. I do have a lot of teak plywood too.

Depending upon price, look at some of the older Jeanneau and Beneteaus. Islander, San Juan, C&C, to name a few more that have mid 20-30' boats that might work.

I drives me dinghy!
