I have a PDQ32, and have liked it (it is now up for sale...dirt cheap at $79k..must sell by mid Nov). It is too small to fit your 34 to 38 ft range, but you could consider a PDQ36 if you can find one at that price. It is a better boat than the geminis (which are smaller than the PDQ32 in volume, though may be a foot or two longer). Used Prouts tend to be a little more money, but very solid boats. But the older ones look old in style. The tobago is a nice production boat...not very fancy but sails ok. For your first boat I would suggest something modest that you can resell after you really discover what you want. Look at my PDQ 32 (Top Cat) listed on
