If you're are ok with fin keels I may suggest a Merit 25. I own one and it's fairly trailerable (came from Corpus Christi to Valle de Bravo in Mexico, and from there to the Pacific coast -Vallarta and Acapulco). We take about one hour to rig again, the accomodations are good, nothing fancy but the V berth is as spacious as 30 footers. 6 Knots? of course! we make 6-7 regularly on our little lake, on the ocean we made 12 on a run downwind. Within your budget, the problem I think is to find one up there in northeast.
Valle de Bravo, Mexico
Merit 25, #302. 1982
Flying Tern 14', 1968
