Which boat should i buy

Im thinking of buying a yacht to do a bit of sailing, I would like it to be able to cope with the odd trip a cross the channel, I would also like stability and accomodation and speed and seaworthyness,takeing into account? I have narrowed it down to four yachts to look at, Can you advise which would be the best suited and which would be up to sailing across the channel and how they sail in heavy sea's?

Achillies 24
Egythene 24
Westerly Gk24
Hurley 24

I am not familiar with any of these boats but at 24 feet you're not going to get much in the way of accommodations below. Also, not sure how you would define "heavy seas" but a 24-footer would have a rough go of it in waves over five feet.

Back in the 70s I was looking to buy an Achillies 24 from Butler Moldings. A number of these yachts have sailed around the world, a nice yacht and very seaworthy. Not sure about the others although the westerly were good yachts.
