As others have implied, there are other options out there that would be worthy of consideration, particularly in the "sailing Qualities" department!
Well, the biggest reasons thus far is that at 6'4" tall I actually fit on the boats I referenced, I can lay down in the aft berth and not hit my head in the salon, I as well have a limited expense account for the purchase, and a cruiser is what I am looking for. I fully understand that some boats "sail" better than others, hence asking about sailing characteristics. I did get some useful info from some who seemingly understood the line and purpose of my question.
If you have a suggestion I am more than happy to here your advice, thanks.
