Good list

I favor the look and design of the classic design sailboat.

On my short list are:
Cape Dory
Sea Sprite

Any other recommendations?

Suggest you look at Mariner (NH built) 36. They can be had for just a touch above ($27-29K). They carry a bunch of room for their size. Give and take a few small issues, they are worth consideration IMHO. Good luck and good sailing.
