That entirely depends on your intended use of the boat, and your experience.
If you're just getting started with sailing, something smaller will be easier to handle, maintain, and much less of a headache if you decide it's not for you. It's a smaller initial investment, and so on. Perhaps a trailer sailor would be a good starter.
Since you suggest a Hunter 25 I assume you're not ever planning on heading offshore, which means a smaller boat of that type might be well suited provided you are comfortable inside if you plan on weekending, and that it has a good cockpit layout as most of your time will be spent there.
