The BCCs are nice, and I think the sprit can be dealt with if roller furling is installed. I like sprits, but I prefer when they have platforms installed atop. You might also consider:

Pacific Seacraft Dana 24 - Interior feels roomier than the BCC, and the sprit has a nice working platform

Shannon 28 - Similar to Dana 24 but roomier all-around

Cape George 31 - Like the BCC this is an Atkin derived hull (Tally-Ho!); if I was interested in the BCC I'd choose the CG31 over it (ironically, they're now made by the same company, Cape George Marineworks)

Pacific Seacraft Crealock 31 - Less static waterline than the BCC, but more modern fin keel, and MUCH roomier interior

Don't forget the Morris/Paine boats (Annie, Leigh, , etc)
