A lot of factors to consider. How much do you have to spend? Will you be able to afford a slip or mooring, or want to trailer it?
The ability to trailer it will bring the cost of ownership down but will also limit your sailing time. If you are going to trailer it you should look at 22 feet and below. Expect 1-2 hours to rig a 22 footer unless you have a mast raising setup and a lot of practice. At 17 foot and smaller you could raise the mast yourself and be in the water in under a half hour. My West Wight Potter takes 20 minutes to launch. Instead of taking a long time looking at a list of dreamboats, why not just see whats available locally or within your willing to drive distance, within your budget and work from there.
PS the Starwind 22 is the same as the Chrysler 22, I think.
