Seems as though we are in similar situations. I spent the last two months looking at boats in the mid 20's range. Found the Hunter 25 to be far too cramped. Mind you that my wife and I have 3 young children that we're sure are going to love being confined to small space for extended periods of time. Anyway we were looking for much more space. After many trips to numerous boatyards we came across a 1979 Paceship 26. I was absolutely amazed at the amount of space inside, even with an inboard engine. 5 full berths, 6' head room below, marine head, nice size cockpit and room to move topside made it a no brainer. As with the previous reply I can't speak to her sailing characteristics, just went in the water yesterday, so can't comment on that aspect personally. Looking forward to exploring Casco Bay and beyond.
Check out Yachtworld.com, I see there is one available in Boston.
