Beginning a search for a trawler

Hello
I am currently a rag bagger, my wife is not so into the work of sailing. Loves the slow speed and boat time just not the work of sailing a boat. So we are looking at moving from a catalina 36 to to trawler in the 34-36ft range.

I have no idea where to begin. Looking for something under 60000.
probably a single screw for fuel economy. Looking for suggestions.
this will be used in the pacific northwest might make a trip to washington.

Looking for info on boats or years of certain boats to avoid.

Which forum on here is the best to start with getting general info on the above questions. Wish there was a place to test drive different models. brokers typically do not take you out until you have an offer on the table how does one go out and get a feel for what boat will work for them?

Thanks Ed
