cored liveaboard for <50k

I plan on purchasing a boat in the next few months to live aboard and sail around New England. I work on a schooner and I have a good deal of experience living and working aboard traditional boats. However, for obvious reasons, I don't want to own a wooden boat. I don't have as much experience with modern production boats and I was wondering if y'all had some suggestions for me.

I'm working with a budget of about 50k and I'm looking for a sensible live-aboard that will still sail well. Size is not a huge factor, I'm comfortable living in something as small as 28ft and I'm comfortable docking a 40 footer. A cored hull is important to me as I will be living aboard up north. The boat will see mostly shorthanded daysails and overnights with an occasional passage down to NC. I've looked into a Southern Cross, and while I like the fact that she has an Airex core, and has a healthy D/L for living aboard, but she's a little too slow of a sailer for me. C&C's are plentiful in my area and are good sailers but they seem a little too spartan to live aboard. What are some other boats with cored hulls that I should be looking into?

Thanks Guys
