Offshore bluewater cruising - what sailboat would be best?

So I'm in the process of trying to find the perfect bluewater offshore sailboat for me. A boat that will take me across oceans if I want to. I've been looking on Yachtworld alot of late.

Here are my needs…..the boat has to be pretty cheap (not more than $10,000), very seaworthy (I don’t want to end up sinking in the middle of the ocean), lots of storage down below, able to use as a liveaboard, able to be sailed singlehanded, good headroom (I’m 6 foot 1).

I just read this book which had some good recommendations....
