Sorry Jeff and Sailor,
But, don''t forget the Beneteau Oceanis CC series. Roomy, affordable for the $$, and so lovely to sail. I have singlehanded the 40 many times, across a few lakes and a few miles on the ICW and out for daysails.
Other than that, there is the Norseman 447 that seems to be a great liveaboard both room and set-up wise. They galley was a wonderful treat - storage, etc. Don''t even know if they make them anymore, though, or how many are available used. Brought one from St. Lucia to Little River, SC. Very easy singlehander for her size and sail. My only warning - she''s a bitch on a downhill run. Sails great and gets thru cells fast but there''s not a comfy place to sleep on the whole boat while downhill.
