Last winter I built my self a nut shell pram, and learn the basics of sailing this past summer. Now am looking for my first upgrade. I am either looking at the 14''-16'' (coronado 15), or the 20''-22''(catalina 22,J22). I am afraid that if I get the smaller boat I would not beable to take freinds out (because of the size) but yet if I get a bigger boat, I am afraid I would loose the performance. Also my budget is under 5,000. I am looking for some thing to last me 5-10 years until I get into the 25''-27'' range.

They may be a little higher or less than 5K in some cases, but the Pearson 26 is a great starter boat. It has weekend capabilities, great handling and sturdy enough to handle a little weather. The cockpit can handle four pretty easily. Mine has a built in head.
