Looking for a project Boat NJ

I'm new to this forum and looking for some help...
I'm an avid sailor, I have a Hunter 260 and sail Barnegat Bay in New Jersey.
I'm also a self employed custom cabinet maker & woodworker...
I have a buddy/partner and together we're looking for a larger "project boat" to refurbish and ultimately launch and sail her.
We're thinking mid 30's or larger...

A few considerations....
1. We'd like to start with a desireable shell, after all, a pig in an evening gown is still a pig. Any thoughts on boat builders and/or models?
2. I don't want a wooden boat, a fiberglass hull is a must and the hull can't have issues.
3. Obviously price, we don't want to spend a lot to start out as we'll be doing that on the other end.
4. Distance is a consideration, a boat on the west coast won't work...

Can anyone offer any help?
Thanks, feel free to call me at 732-614-5535
Jeff
