New Boat Shopping

I just sold my boat and we are looking for a new one. I'm looking for something small enough to single hand but enough for the Caribbean. Looking for something on a budget. I've looked at a Endeavour 32 that I liked, a Pearson 35, an Irwin 33 and a Tarten 34. All late 70's and a 1980 for the Endeavour. I'm not looking to cross an ocean at this point otherwise I'd sale the farm and find a CSY 44. Any thoughts on the list or other boats to look at. Remember the budget at this point. Thanks.

IMHO the Pearson and the Tartan are a notch or two above the others as far as initial build quality goes. Don't know what your budget is but if you can find a Nonsuch that you can afford they would be ideal for single-handing. They are also fairly fast and easy to sail.

Good Luck !

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

This next boat I want to keep the initial out put no more than 30. I'd really like to keep the boat between 20 and 30. I know I'm going to have to do some upgrades. Would the Pearson or the Tartan be okay for going anywhere in the Caribbean?
