Do not throw out other brands such as Jeanneau, Hunter, Dehler, Dufour, bavaria, Tartan, C&C............. many of these brands have models that may work well for your needs too.
In the Jeanneau brand, there are a lot of SO37 models around, along with the smaller newer and slightly faster SO35. Or the newest model 36i. If you go older, sunshine 36 to the SO34.2 and 36.2. All would make good boats there in the area you are wanting to sail and cruise.
Look at lots, figure out the floorplan you like, and away you go!
