I recently bought a Garmin 76S, which retails for about $450, but can be found (on some auction websites) for a bit less.
It has all the functions you mentioned, and lots more. Besides WAAS, it has a built-in barometer for use in determining altitude or weather prediction. Tide data is included, and the unit can hold up to 25 MB of data.
To get the most out of it, you will need to load data from one or more Garmin CD-ROMs. For use as a chartplotter you''ll need to load BlueChart data for the area in which you predominately sail. (BTW, they say it floats, but I have no intention of testing that claim. ;^)
