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)
Clearwater 36
CS 36
Ericson 35
Ericson 38
Hughes 38
LeCompte Northeast 38-3
Sabre 34
Tartan 33

Hopefully, this will provide some additional food for thought,
Jeff
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.

Thank you Jeff, being looking around and for the price and all the things the family work on tha boat seems to be a fair deal, and we still have some budge to work on other things.

Re: Alber 37 MkII

Before getting too far into boat brand and size, it might be helpful to view all (!) of the terrific videos put up by this couple.
Two Afloat. They have now sold their boat, and one of them has health issues -- which precipitated the cruise in the first place. i.e. go while you still can go.

I would advocate an Ericson also, and full disclosure, my boat was constructed by Ericson.

Movies are usually not the best place for 'wisdom' but when the aged knight told Indy to "choose wisely" that was memorable advice!

While I am partial to the Ericson, having done an overnight delivery on an E-32 Mk 3, I have also done a similar delivery on a Sabre 32.

Choosing between these is difficult. Both are upper tier constructed boats. The Ericson might be a bit faster, but still.... this is comparing "gold to gold" !
Survey will give you guidance.

It is great to have "tough" choices like this in life.


BTW, I am not sure where to find Sabre owners on the web, but you can find out a ton of info about Ericson's on the owners site, EricsonYachts.org: The Starting Point on Ericson Yachts!.
