t22cayuga is on a distinguished road
You might look for a Pearson Flyer. I've seen several for sale in New England that are well within your price range. They have a huge (8') cockpit with real seat backs, good for family daysailing. The interior is spacious but not much there other than settees. It's not a cruising boat, but you could certainly weekend on it. Good light air boat, good boat to start racing on. The big issue on these boats and on similar boats (J/30, J/29) is going to be finding one that has been well maintained or rehabilitated. The cheaper examples of all of these boats will likely need a lot of work (core replacement, rigging updates).
