sailboats with big cockpit

i currently have a 1971 cal 25 with the poptop and which also has about a 7 foot cockpit which my wife really likes. We like the boat alot. but would like a bigger boat 27-30+ feet which is less corky, and which would also have a big cockpit, like the cal 25. My wife also likes the fact that the deck is flat which gives her a good vista when we go out. I like the fact that the boat feels very solid and safe. my question is which boats in the size range mentioned, 27 -30+ come with a fairly big cockpit, similar to the one found on the cal 25, which might be a little faster and which would also not be too tender in heavy winds. Price range about 25K, or less. I''ve looked at ads for catalina 30, cal 30 , pearson 30 but would like other suggestions ,eg J boats, given the above prerequisites. we currently sail out of boston and hope to continue to do day trips and also longer overnights with my 2 kids. thanks gary
