help me find 'my' boat

Looking for the smallest boat I can find that will fit into my needs. ALL of these. Please don't send me off looking at boats that don't fit the list. It's my list and I'm sticking to it. There are plenty of boats that will fit the list 42' and over, hoping to find something smaller. Coastal cruising ONLY, no offshore passagemaking. Livaboard cruising.

Here's my requirements...

No more than a 5' draft.

Single mast, no more than 62'.

Water tankage of at least 150 gallons.

Fuel tankage of at least 75 gallons.

Decent sized windows, I refuse to live in a submarine.

A queen bed that I doesn't require me to crawl over my wife to get up to pee! This is the single biggest problem with smaller boats. A good forward master with a nice V-berth is possible.

A separate shower stall.

Prefer In-mast furling, we ain't gettin any younger. All lines must lead to the cockpit.

Whacha got?
