Of course, you might be able to find a Catamaran that fits the specs, but I doubt it...

Most cats will have less than 5' draft, especially centerboard models, which usually have a board up draft of about 1-2'.

Almost all cats have wonderful wrap-around windows.

Ditto for the shower stall, and the master cabin is usually very spacious.

In-mast furling is an option that can be added to almost any boat. In-boom furling is the other option. In-boom furling is probably a bit better, as it leaves less weight aloft.

Lines led back is an option that can be added to most boats.

Also, are you looking at new or used??

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
