Here's a YW search for Western Europe with your parameters (to 35 feet and $15K US):

(Sail) Cruiser Boats For Sale Belgium

And the same for the Eastern US....

(Sail) Cruiser Boats For Sale

Obviously a huge difference in selection, but at that budget not a lot of typical serious ocean going boats will pop up.

You're going to need patience, diligence and a bit of luck, I suspect, to find the perfect example.
