Have you considered a Wayfarer? Famous British one-design - made somewhat famous by someone who's name escapes me at the moment - they did some extensive cruising in one. Designed by Ian Proctor, available in several renditions from wood to FRP. Should be plenty available in 'merry old'..

EDIT 2:... great mind - BAH.... now I see your in NEW England... time for another coffee...
