Re: Buccaneer 18 vs. Coronado C-15 [Catalina]
I would say the C-15 is a sit-ON, not a sit-in, and for that reason, I do not like them.
I've never seen the other two, but they appear to be sporty. You may like that, but your wife may not, especially if she is inexperienced. Of the two, the Buccaneer looks more comfortable.
Since you asked which would I choose, my first answer is neither, but that is based on my wife, not yours. Beyond that, I recommend that you bring your wife along to look at boats and buy the one she likes the best. If you want something else in the future, you can change boats easier and cheaper than changing wives.
