World's Best Sailing Boat for my 2 year trip

I was reading so many threads and blogs and books and other information sources that I am getting rather confused than enlightened with regards to what boat to choose.

Key Priorities for my boat selection:
1. Sleeps at least 4 people
2. below 100KUSD
3. Safe
4. fast
5. some comfort

hence I was looking at following boats :
Allied Luder 33
Morgan 384
Bristol 35.5
Sadler 34
I actually would prefer a boat between 35-42 ft....
Any experience exchange , feedback or alternative proposals are very welcome

You'd be pretty hard pressed to fit four people aboard any one of those boats, with the possible exception of the morgan, for any extended time period. As my friend says about his C&C 38... Sails 6, feeds 4, sleeps 2... and that's probably a bigger boat than all of the ones you're looking at.

Also, none of those boats are going to be "fast". The Sadler is probably the fastest of the bunch, and not that fast as sailboats go.

Personally, for four people and with that budget, I'd look at something like a Wharram catamaran, which will give you more space and speed than a monohull. The Prout Snowgoose 37, the Iroquois Mk II are also good choices. Another possible choice would be a Jim Brown designed Searunner 37 or 40 trimaran, or a Telstar 35 if you can find one. Four people, unless they are particularly close to each other, are going to need more room than a 35-38' monohull sailboat can generally provide.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
