I am looking for options to create a list of sailboats that would fit my expectations/wants/needs.
I am going to sail around puget sound, Lake Washington, occasional (twice-three times a year weekend trip to SJI), but mostly daysailing, fast laps around the lake and such.
I would like a 27-30 ft in length. The interior does not concern me too much, but I would like a little more than barebones.
Fixed keel is a must, and possibly a hull that can plane.
Inboard diesel is a must.
Here comes the worst part, the budget is ideally under $100,000, but if I find the perfect boat I am able to go up to $130,000.
On my list I have so far:
-Catalina 275 Sport (not so sporty I read, but I have not had the chance to try it yet and the price tag is very attractive at around $80k)
-Pogo 30 (this would be nearly ideal, except it comes from France(?) and it is pricey to have it shipped here, as far as I heard)
Thank you all for the help and suggestions!
