Water depth is going to be your limiting factor, and you need to base it on the low tide depth, not the high tide depth; otherwise you'll be stuck looking at your boat sitting on the bottom, unable to get it out of the slip except at high tide.

As far as sailboats for that slip/depth, you're going to be looking at pretty small daysailors, probably centerboard dinghies, maybe a Hobie Cat. Going to be hard to find something with a cabin for water that shallow.
