Re: O'Day vs Hunter vs Beneteau
I owned an O'day 35 from 2006-2014. It would meet your requirements. Affordable, spacious, reliable, comfortable, etc. I had no problem getting any parts I needed. My boat was damaged in hurricane Sandy (another boat dragged into my boat and damaged the rub rail, life lines, stanchions, etc) and I was able to get all new replacement parts. The engine (Universal Diesel) is still supported, the rig is still supported. About the most difficult parts to get were for the Barient winches.
My boat had the shoal draft keel. Great for getting close to the beach and sailing in shallow water. Not so great at sailing close to the wind.
