The C25 is pretty roomy for it's size and loads of fun to sail. I think you might outgrow it quickly.
If you don't mind possibly moving up in a couple of years there are loads of great deals on used boats in the under 10K market. Don't be afraid to low ball.
Depending on your needs, the C27 is a great day sailor with comparable living space to many older 30 ft boats.
