There is no such thing as a perfect cruiser for $75K. And I don't consider a boat
that requires 1000 man hours of work
to get to the Bahamas
a "perfect" cruiser no matter what its other positive attributes are-- unless you are one of those masochists who loves to spend his weekends sanding
If I were you I'd be looking for a Bristol 35.5 in decent condition. Centerboarders are good for the Bahamas
. Also a Wauquiez Pretorian or a Hunter Cherubini
. Hunters used to make decent boats, even though they don't any more. All of these will be 1980s models.
