"IF" speed is a thing you want, go to
This is a hi-ave-low phrf rating for boats in the US. While PHRF is NOT the end all be all of speed for boats, it will give you a general prediciton. Hence for the two you mentioned, then this Jeanneau for sale in Belleingham, similar to mine but a bit smaller

Jeanneau 201 - 222 - 213
Newport 186 - 198 - 192
San Juan 174 - 191 - 180

The Jeanneau is a bit smaller, has an out board, but probably a bit nicer more open interior than the Newport or San Juan. Not sure about price in general either.

Others to look at include any of the Catalina's, 27, 28 or 30, Hunter, C&C, Cal, Ranger, Islander, Ericson among others that are very popular around here.

Good luck in your quest. If you look at and buy the Jeanneau, there is an owners roundesvous at Poets Cove, a 5 star resort in the canadian Gulf Islands the third weekend in June. Islanders meet the same weekend at Port ludlow. A friend of mine has a 40'. I;ve also seen owners get togethers for Tartan, C&C, Hunter among others, You can get a list in the local 48 north rag.
