I cannot make recommendations for you, I think everyone's wants and needs are too different. But I can tell you what was important for me and why.
First my handyman skills are not great, so I wanted are reasonably new boat, only 5+/- years old. Hopefully it was still new enough not to have major structural issues but old enough to have got over the worst of the new boat depreciation.
Second, I wanted three cabins. Although I don't expect to be over crowded with guests it would be nice to have the space if needed, and I can use the spare cabin
I chose to have only one bathroom, I think it is really an indulgence to have an ensuite for everyone.
I do a lot of writing so it was important to have a separate and comfortable navigation
station to use as a desk.
I also live in the tropics so aircon was a must in the marina with shore power
. It is not needed when I am cruising because good air flow keeps the temp down and comfortable.
I like to swim so a transom that works as a swim platform is really a nice plus. It also has a shower
hose which is appreciated just to wash the salt
of the face.
I hate having to tow a dinghy
behind. So I was really pleased the previous owner had optioned davits
off the stern so the dinghy
can be easily lifted out of the water
on short cruises.
I have an L-shaped galley
which is really nice. Just about everything is in reach without needing to move much. But about half the work space is the fridge top. Maybe one day I will be able to replace it with a pullout drawer style.
I like lots of natural light so plenty of hatches and windows were important for me.
Anyhow, that's just some of the things I looked for and found in my Bavaria
