Laser 2000 in the States?

I learned to sail in Europe using the Laser 2000, which could comfortably hold 3 adults and also had a double trapeze which was a lot of fun. After searching, it seems that this boat is not available in the States so I have been trying to find a comparable boat. What I liked about the Laser 2000 was that it was easy for a beginner to handle, very stable and comfortable for daysailing, but also had all of the elements for more experienced sailing like the trapeze and spinnaker. I've been looking at the Club 420, Club FJ (both of which don't seem to be suited for two adults), Laser 2, and Vector, all from Vanguard, but these all seem to be designed specifically for racing with a very narrow hull. On the other hand, the 146 and 170 from Hunter seem to be very comfortable for daysailing, but lack the trapeze. I'd really appreciate it if someone could suggest a boat which combines these features like the Laser 2000. Thanks!
