This is somewhat of a self-serving post, but I have a possible suggestion for you to consider: a Grampian 34. And yes, I am selling one: (www.elysian.ca
There were only about 50 made, so they're rare, but they do meet many of your requirements:
- 33.5' LOA
- 7' head room
- big head (for the size of boat)
- within your price range
- lots of storage
- stiff, comfortable cruiser
Where it fails is in the open transom. Grampian 34s came in two version, the centre-cockpit ketch (our boat) and an aft-cockpit sloop. Same hull.
Grampians are Canadian-built boats, well known for their solid, simple construction. They're not fancy, but they are great cruisers. If you see one in good shape, you should take a look.
