The reasons I chose my Catalina 25:
Inexpensive boat to learn on.
Fully depreciated, so as long as I take care of her I'll get most of my money back.
Big difference in cabin comfort over the C22 for not much more $$.
Has a head, galley, comfortable berths.
Very forgiving boat to learn on.
Paid cash, she's all mine.
She's a great weekender...sort of like a pop up camper in the RV world. A great starter camper without spending $$$ on a cushy 5'er. I'm learning to sail, learning to work on her, and most importantly, learning just what I really do want and do not want...so my next boat, which will be purchased in about 3 years from now, will be what I learned that I want/need...and will be the boat I sail until retirement when I drop serious $$$ on a blue water cruiser.
Take a look at the Catalina 25's and 27's.....great entry level boats that should meet your needs for now without breaking the bank....save that for later when you "know" what you want.
