Try to find that 1% boat in a size you will be comfortable with.

Your budget should include anywhere between 10-20% for outfitting, repairs, upgrades, etc.

There are lots of great boats on the market in your price range, don't rush and find that boat that is just right for you. I don't think you would go wrong with any of the ones you're looking at if its been well cared for :)

Check out a Tartan 34C.

Nay, go for it! We went from a crappy little 20' Buccaneer (value= $500) to the T37 and more than pleased we did so...I was able to eliminate twofootitis. You can always make up grades to a boat as you go, but its really hard to add 2 feet here and there ;) LOL

I love wood, dark woods especially, so no I doesn't bother me at all. To each their own. Some owners have lightened the interior in different ways, most often around the ports either painting or replacing the teak. I replaced my headliner a few years ago with a semi gloss white.

The Pearson's are fine yachts, a marina neighbor has a P33, I love it.
