choices made for 1st boat?

Hi All,
Sailnet seems like school - in a good way . I took up sailing 3 summers ago. Took lessons, then began crewing on a J24, racing almost every week over the summer/fall on Long Island Sound.

Looking for a first boat, under 30'. Comfortable cruiser with speed. Mostly daysailing and an occasional overnight or weekend trip. Not more than 6 aboard for a daytrip or single handed afternoons.

Any suggestions and/or insights would be helpful. Any Long Island sailboat owners who can tell me about choices made for 1st boats?

Would rather spend a few dollars extra to get a better boat as I plan on sailing her for a while.
