What type would be could ?

I am going to be living in the Philipeans for several years and was thinking about getting a sailboat while there. I have read several reviews of boats like Westsails and Pacific Seacarft which are heavy boats. What type of sailboat would be could to have in this area. I am not planning on living on it but I would like to be able to go on week long trips. The boat would need to be able to be sailed single handed.

I think the question is what type of sailing will you be doing? I am not familiar with the area you will be sailing. If you are just island hopping and not going out into the open sea for offshore passages, you do not need boats like those you mention. If you stay in protected waters, or go offshore for short shots, you can buy something cheaper that would work just as well. Both the Westsail and the Crealock have excellent reputaions for construction and are passage making yachts. Both are heavy boats and thus will not be the best in light air - especially the Westsail - another thing to consider.
