I'm considering buying a small(ish) boat, which I can use weekends and for shorter passages on the north/East Coast of England. I already have a Bavaria out in the Ionian, but can only get to her 2-3 times a year.
I've looked at Catalina, Hunter and similar, but would appreciate any advice - especially from owners.
Spec I'd like is: 25-30ft (or thereabouts); decent double berth, separate heads, inboard engine. I've generally looked for fin keel, but would be willing to look at twin bilge keel, etc., if someone can convince me that I should! Stability is quite key, as my wife isn't the greatest sailor! One thing I know is a tall order is that I'd like wheel steering - but realise that's probably unrealistic in this size vessel and Budget of circa £12000
All help/opinions gratefully received.
