I don't need luxury or fancy fittings, just like the idea of going on over night trips.

a small place to cook would be great too

As Faster mentioned a budget might help but you are highly unlikely to find full size berth , decent galley etc in anything much under 40' and probably a plus 44' centre cockpit.

Ignoring anything else about the boat you might check out the Beneteau 423. They have a pretty good forward cabin and a decent galley, particularly in the two cabin version. Beneteaus in the 45 - 55 foot range should easily qualify.

On my Catalina 36, I keep the dinette down at all times for use as a "pit sofa". There is a 2 person game table starboard to use for dining. I tried to post a photo, but that never works for some reason.
