Some of the Gary Mull designed Rangers can be 'sleepers'.. The entire C&C line would probably fall within your parameters, and I'd throw in the Ray Wall designed CS boats too even though he's not necessarily a 'name'. Tony Castro had some good success in racing in Britain and went to design a number of newer CS models, as well as a sprinkling of Jeanneaus and others.
Also the Ron Holland designed Ericson 36 and 33 are great boats and another that comes to mind is the German Frers designed Niagara 31, though the last two are outside your size limit.
