I went through this with my father a maybe 6 or so years ago. We ended up looking at a lot of boats of your general description. Dad ended buying a Brewer 12.8 which is a cutter rigged, keel centerboard version of the Whitby 42. In general, the build quality and sailing ability seemed to be a step up from boats that you mentioned.
