As others have said, for what you want to do and in you price range there are a lot better boats out there;( that will sail better in light or heavier winds, be easier to handle, and have maybe more interior space, maybe more carrying capacity, better motions, and better or equal build quality) than the Alberg 37.
The Tartan 34c is certainly one of them. Off the top of my head, here are a few more:
Apache 37 (S&S Design)
Bristol 35.5 (Hood /Empacher)
Bristol 33/34. (Halsey Herreshoff design)
LeCompte Northeast 38-3
Hopefully, this will provide some additional food for thought,
Thank Jeff for all the amaizing boats, just found a nOtheast 38 close to home, looks beutyfull, little more money then we can afford, need to go take a look. Just wish I could post a link for that T34c , is on our budge and seems the family was taking care very well with new engine, rigging and so for. Will see with all this new options I will go for the hunt.
