No. But if you like the 410 take a look at the 40.5 that is very similar layout except for the forward berth/head, but are older and maybe could be gotten for the $65k

In the end, it's what level of comfort that YOU need.

I believe the 320 and 310 share the same hull but have different interior configuration? Check this link below to here from a delivery captain that delivered one down the path you are planning.

Re: What size boat do you see in the Carribean

if you're just doing the caribbean you won't need to take a lot of stuff with you - 30 days of food is probably two weeks too much, as we discovered. same for clothing - shorts and t-shirts is the order of the day. we have a 37' cutter for just the two of us, and there are times when i think i could do as well on a smaller but well laid out boat, maybe 34 feet.

i wouldn't get too concerned about getting one more foot of loa; just find a well built comfortable boat that sails well and can stand the occasional heavy seas and high winds.

Older designs are smaller as far as open cabin space, but newer designs tend to come up very short on storage space. Think about where you're going to put everything, then consider sleeping arrangements, cooking, and lounging.
