With respect, lumping a Saturna 33 and the Coast 34 together with CSs and Yamahas is really looking at such different ends of the spectrum that I think you need to do some refining of what you really want. There are big performance, hull form and 'design intention' differences among that list.

Do you want a semi-heavier displacement cruiser? or a more agile, responsive fin keeler? What kind of sailing will you be doing and in what area? Weekending or extended cruising? The answers to questions like these will help to understand (for us and for you) which type of boat would be a better fit....
