I have a 1978 34' Californian, fits that pretty close. I got mine for 25K (it was a steal even if it was a project), i have about 40K total invested, and I am not done, but I dont mind at all. It has been usable since day one, just not in great shape. Its still not in great shape (especially compared to the boats these guys on here sport..OMG!!!)

But it is nice and comfortable. If I was going to spend more time on the boat with the wife (longer then long weekends) I would go a bit bigger. When I retire, if my wife wants to spend weeks on a boat I will go to something in the 40+ foot range and probably a pilot house style... I LOVE the sea Ranger 47 foot older models!
