New to the sea

Hi everyone, just joined the forum.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post but here goes...

I'm exploring the possibility of living on a small yacht for 6months strictly for cruising the Greek Isles.

I plan to get certifications/ experienece next year in corfu and then learn as much as I can about sailing. Ultimately I'm curious what a good value 35' yacht thats easy to sail and has a respectable living area for two people. My budget would be under 100k. Ideally I think a smaller boat would be good to learn on for 5years or so and then consider an upgrade.

Beneteau oceanus series?
Jboats? Tartan?

any thought?
Thanks!
