The Tayana 37 is a proven world cruiser in the $80-100k range and has much in common design wise with the Valiant...including the designer! (Robert Perry) but it is a small boat inside. Another similar boat is the Pacific Seacrat 34 & 37.
Getting away from canoe sterns...the Cape Dory 36, the Sabre 36 & 38, Passport 40 are all different boats that nay appeal to you with the Sabres probably closest to the Tartan.
If I were singlehanding, I'd go with the Cape Dory 36...but I'm a traditionalist and like the full keel in a smaller boat, a well protected rudder and a cutter rig...in a pretty Alden design.
