A trailerable boat boat that will take you anywhere is the Albin Vega. 4' draft, 8' beam 27' lgth. Weighs 5K dry. Of course i'm prejudiced, but I think you could not go wrong with a Vega.

catalina 270?

If you want a boat that sails well, has circumnavagated several times, is found in ports all over the world, and can be had for a reasonable price look at a Albin Vega 27.
