kavakava is on a distinguished road
We too started small - Seafarer 22, Catalina 27, Gulfstar 36, and now our retirement boat, a Hunter 41. We sail the Chesapeake and hope to cruise down the ICW and spend next winter in the Keys and Bahamas. I agree with the other comments, and wives (mine especially) are especially cognizant of the sleeping accomodations, head and shower, and galley. We like the Hunter design for ease of coastal sailing, all lines led aft, fractional jib, large cockpit, good galley and head, reasonable price, and generous sleeping cabin. We used Bill Yates of Adventure Yachts in Annapolis to find our last boat, and he was extremely knowledgable and patient. He's a livaboard cruiser.
