Pick a Boat . . . Any Boat

Hello, I hope this finds you all well.

I was hoping you all might give me some of your thoughts with regards to good seaworthy vessel. I have been looking at an Alberg 30, a Marieholm 32, and two Yankee 30's. I plan on hanging out around the US and the Caribbean for a year and then head off on a solocercumnavigation.

So I am also very fond of the Westsail 32, Southern Cross 31, and Alberg's 35 and 37. These boats, however, are a little more expensive and I would need to save and sell off some things which would take 2-3 monthes.

I recently got rid of my little bay cruiser, an Aquarius 23. Now, every time the wind blows I get seperation anxiety : )

I have figgured out I have a few options:
--Buy a small boat for under 10K to keep sailing (coastal) and wait a year to find a larger around the worlder.
--Buy one of the first three designs for around 20K and start doing what ever sailing I fell like now.
--Wail untill November-January and find one of the second three designs.

I am also very interested in other boats that you may know of!

That's a good starting point. I would also add Contessa (26 if I recall) and Bristol Channel cutter (28 comes to mind) to the list.

Oh, and a Searunner if you are aren't totally locked in on monos.

Oh, by the way, does anyone know about the Marieholm 32? I haven't read, much but it seams to be a larger Folkboat with a keel stepped mast.
