I have a friend at the marina that has lived aboard an Albin 28 motorsailor for years. A bit snug but she and her Jack Russel do alright. Her boat is ketch
rigged but would take a ton of work to get to where it would sail. On the other hand, you might want to take a look at an Albin 28 trawler
. At one point they made one with an aft cabin
. My friend's motorsailor is an aft cabin
I'll echo the above comments re: bayliner. I don't really think they are too terribly robust. Try looking on yachtworld.com to see what's available and in your price
Good luck, looking for a boat is always great fun. Just take a friend with you when you go to look so the stars in your eyes don't blind you too much.
