I really like the C&C 40 that I saw way back in the 80s. Not sure if it was the same design, but it had pilot berths and maybe a torpedo of lead at the bottom of the keel. Actually looked at buying one.
Get a survey, then you'll know what it's worth. We surveyed 2 other boats before we surveyed and bought ours. At one survey, the surveyor turn to me and said "you know this boat sunk, right?". EACH TIME, GETTING A SURVEY WAS THE BEST MONEY I HAVE EVER SPENT.
Same surveyor on our boat, I asked, "Should I buy her?" And he said, "I just surveyed this same boat for $100,000 more."
(By "same" he meant make/model/etc. not the exact boat.)
BEST MONEY I EVER SPENT.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
