Before any one jumps, I currently own a hunter...and I would say it tops off the low end sailboats, nothing wrong with any in this group:
Cabo Rico, some of them, others seem to have been made ??
Sabre (owned a very affordable 38, awesome boat quality, poor sleeping for two)
Now that you have a list, visit a few and see for your self. I have seen some late 70's Swans that needed so much work, as to make them almost worthless, but the name prevails.
We sold our Sabre as the Vberth was just un workable for two 50-somethings to crawl all over each other to get in and out. Entertaining, but annoying at 2am...
All boats have issues and are compromises, even new ones. These are one man's opinions, others will share theirs.
Best of luck, it is an awesome lifestyle
