You are going to need a boat with an I dim around 38'
38' plus 6' for height abv th3 DWL gives you 44'
That means you are going to be looking at some short rigged boats in the 37' range where most boats would have an I dim closer to 10' more than that.

Maybe something in the 32' range.
I'd rather have a smaller boat with a good sized rig than a bigger boat with an anemic rig.
