Talking about competitive boats at competitive prices: Silva Hispaniola (European Champion in ORCi 2011, 5th at the WOrld Championships 2012), Judel Vrolijk designed, nealry new wardrobe:
Bach Yachting - Evento 42 Silva Hispaniola ORC
That is a 2004 boat, modified but even so a 2004 model, a one off with a racing interior. Regarding competitive boats in ORC that are also very good cruising boats you'd better look to the Salona 37/38 and the Comet 38 but not all the boats are the same and you would have to look to the specifications:
Salona - Salona 37 Race
Salona 37 race for sale - Daily Boats | Buy, Review, Price, Photos, Details
2007 Salona 37 for sale in 17480, Roses- Costa Brava, Spain - boats.com
Comar Comet 38 s year 2008
Comar Comet 38 yachts - Used boats
Regarding the JPK 10.10 it is very competitive in IRC and not as much on ORC. It is also competitive in solo or short crew racing, a thing that none of the others are besides it has a much better racing record and that means something in what regards demand and price
Regarding new boats and in what regards Price/performance/quality/cruiser and racer potential nothing beats the Salona.
Look at the price of new 38IBC with Carbon masts and basalt bulkheads:
