4 ft draft, full keel, 30' and over?

I currently sail a Cape Dory 27 that I love, but have come down with a bad case of 3 foot-itis. Looking to go at least to 30' up to 36' max. but due to where I keep the boat would like to stick with a 4' draft.

I know there is a CD 30 like that, does anyone know any other similar type boats over 30', full keel style with that 4 foot draft?

Thanks in advance, this site has so much great infol.

Hi-just to show that they do exist-this is my Coaster 33-there were about 150 of them built in the UKhttp://tasteofsailing.co.uk/003.JPGbetween 1972 and 1992-there are at least 6 which made it to the US 33ft long;8 tons and four foot draft.

In 1992 I sailed a Sea Wolf 30 that had a 3.5 foot draft. I think it was this one. (30' Watkins Sea Wolf) The one I sailed in the Abacos was named Onami.
