I'm upgrading to my first big boat from a 22 foot trailer yacht that I sailed in the Delaware Bay and coastal atlantic. I am looking for a boat that I can go on overnighters with my 4 kids and wife and can handle the Atlantic but also be used in the summer for some club racing and is fast and fun to sail. I have looked at a bunch of boats over the last year and have narrowed my search down to a couple of 2004/5 beneteau 36.7s, a 1989 j-37, and a 2004 bavaria 36 with the deep lead keel and full battened main (I know the Bavaria will not be a popular choice here). I am leaning toward the 36.7 but the one boat has been raced every week since new and I have been told this is not good to buy after this kind of use. Despite this, the floors, rigging, and cabin look beautiful, as well as the rest of the boat. I have also sailed on board and aside from a new set of sails seems in pretty good shape. Is it really that bad to buy a 36.7 that has been raced heavily but taken care of? Also, what trouble spots do I need to look for in this boat? Are there any problems with 2004-2009 36.7s?
