Default Looking to Upgrade

Hi I am looking to upgrade next season. I live in Gloucester, MA. Currently I have a Shamrock 22 which is a solid boat and very economical to run. I fish for stripers and pick my days for tuna. When I am with my wife we cruise to a nice spot to anchor and enjoy a relaxing day. Would like a boat with a head and galley and more deck space.

Here are my choices:

Eastern 31
Carolina Classic 28
Albin 28
General Marine 26

I have never had a boat with outboards so I am leaning towards inboard. Any comments or suggestions?

Thanks!

The Carolina Classic would be my choice.

The Carolina Classic is a very well built boat but a little thirsty. I would also be looking at a Dyer, Fortier, JC etc.
