I've checked out the Yorktowns myself. They are hard to find information about. One I looked at was very clean and the owner kept it looking nice.
Most people that I know that have them use them primarily as liveaboards and rarely sail. Again I bought something else just because there was little information out there about Yorktowns.
With $60,000 you should be able to get into something really nice. I would probably go with a production boat like a Catalina 36 - 38, Hunter or my first choice a Freeport 36. Lots of other good boats out there with roomy interiors, information available and good sailing characteristics.
I liveaboard my Newport 30. Very roomy, good intrernet support group and I enjoy sailing it. Check out the magazine, "Good Old Boats," for honest reviews.
