There are a lot on yachtworld for more than that. But also bro you don't want to go crossing oceans on something just because its cheap. And one more thing came to mind....
If you need to go that fast where you are in danger of capsizing or don't know how to not get yourself into a storm, ie avoiding them, reading weather reports and listening to them, paying attention to skies and clouds and waves... then maybe you shouldn't be sailing a cat.
6 knots is the perfect speed and you can load them down with cruising gear. For me sailing is the journey and the special time... the destination is just an added bonus.
Maybe you should get a gas guzzler and put the hammer down.
