recently sold KP44 which was a great boat our next boat will not be purchased for some time. This is what we are looking at 40 -50ft liveaboardsloop or cutter rig preferably centre cockpitocean crossing vessel. A Hylas was suggested as a very well designed and built boat but they are very pricey so thought there might be some other makes without the name $$$ premium that are also worth a look
If you are not into spending a lot of money take a look at a Waquiez Amphitrite 43. Those older WZ's were very nicely built. and decent sailors... I think about $135 asking..... Same price as 12 years ago!
