I also like the IP37 but if your budget is a bit limited take a look at the Pearson365 ketch. I am on my second one thanks to Katrina. I am 6'3" and I single hand, including trip from Georgia to Louisiana. The draft at 4.5 and mast height of 46' allow access to areas others can't go. Putting together plans and preparations for an open ended trip to the Bahamas. Don't limit yourself to 30'. Thirty-six is easy to single hand. A windlass for the anchor and roller furling jib and refridgeration for the cokes and you go anywhere in comfort. Good sailing.
