Help me find a boat for next year

Hi. Next year I am going to get a bigger boat and I would like to start dreaming. Here are some things I would like the boat o hve and maybe ou guys can send me some favorites so I can start looking online.

Less than $20k

Over 28 feet

The less stuff that can break the better. So I really don't want alot of complex electric halyards or whatever

Sturdier than a coastal but doesn't have to be full blue water

Easy to set up windvane. Tracks very well

No gas inboard. Reliable make of engine. Very high priority.

Fin keel

Not a tall rig, handles heavy weather well

Crisp, clean spacious interior. I would rather have a smaller newer boat than a shabby out of style one, but I find alot of 70's-80's boats attractive.

No huge freeboard so it looks like a whale. I would like it to look sleek and racy but will not race so it doesn't have to be a race boat

No canoe transom

Mid to high beam

No center cockpit
