I will also point out these are somewhat contradictory goals. If you want to entertain, you need a large cockpit space. Usually, cockpit space comes at the expense of cabin space.

For your price range, I would buy a Pearson 10M (33 feet). A great value and will beat the pants off your other 3 boats with a PHRF of 141 or 135 - a good, comfortable, stable coastal cruiser with a good turn of speed.
