Merry Fisher 655 to 705
Various models with the older ones having 110hp I boards. I am getting one after researching a wide variety in that length, 6.0m to 7m. There are lots of them about. Some variant, notably the Marlins, are more adapted for fishing out in the bay or lake.

Depending on planned usage. If for regular trips of at least one week, then the newest 40ft catamaran that fits in the budget. Just make sure that sails and the standing rig are either serviceable or budgeted for.
If for weekend sailing, then a 35-40ft yacht.
If for day long adventures then a nice RIB will do
Sorry, heavy motor boats don't cut it for me...

It's each to their own with boat aesthetics. There was a thread on here about RIB styles with some people liking 'pretty' boats and others where form follows function.

I'm quite surprised no one has mentioned Targa.

RIBase
Anything with a cuddy and a soft seat. Been out today F4 gusting F6, soaked with prevailing wind whipping up the sea. Probably last trip of the season. Oh for a cup if tea and the novelty of watching the windscreen wiper! Getting too old for this malarkey.
