Question Would like some more info.

I am planning on buying a 30' sailboat a year or two down the road from now, but I don't know where to begin and what makes each manufacturer's boat different.

The boat will most likely be in the 70-80's to be in my price range. But other than that, I am quite lost which boat to look further into. I have look into Catalina previously both the C27 and C30 designs but I would like to have also other options out there just encase I cannot find one.
What I am wondering is how does an Ericson 30' compare? Does it sail easier? Is the interior cramped?
I also could not find any information on a Newport 30, so anything on them would be much appreciated. Also does an O'Day 30' stack up?

I would like to be able to take the boat out solo fair frequently, but would also like enough space for friends and family.
PS. If there is another manufacturer I should look into I would not mind other recommendations.
