Give me a heading, PLEASE!
I see why you are having problems finding that right boat. I must say that you have described a nearly mutually exclusive list of requirements. It reads like a collection of great ideas from cruising textbooks but from different textbooks by authors who disagree with each other. Collectively you are describing a very customized boat on a high production boat budget.
Some of these items make sense (i.e glassed in Sub-floors, sufficient # bulkheads, longitudinals, through-bolted hull-to-deck joint etc - 130 degrees or more in range of stability) but some are a bit strange (Walk in pantry, A non-fixed, off to the side, or fold up dining table). Some are just plain mutually exclusive (Cutaway traditional keel w/ a soft bilge, Medium to heavy displacement vs responsive, yet stable and balanced and have decent windward performance. It won''t happen, at least not in your budget.)
The few boats that I can think of that might come close either are too expensive, or midships cockpit, or don''t have poured (I think you mean cast)lead keels, or don''t offer the sailing characteristics that you seek or fail on some other major irreversable way.
There may be a make or model out there that has slipped my mind, but I can''t think of it at the moment.
