Your requirement for inboard power will really take you out of the typical "beginner boat" realm. That's fine, but you should know that the majority of small, weekend cruiser style boats are outboard powered. Price appears to be less of a consideration for you, but it would be helpful to know what your budget is. The Alerion mentioned by RayMetz is a great boat: high quality construction and absolutely beautiful design. It also meets all of your criteria (assuming that a non-private head is ok with you and you don't care about standing headroom in the cabin). However, new they cost about 100K, and used they aren't much less. Is that your price range?
