I am looking at a few boats right now in the 10-15k range, but I have my heart set on either of these 2:
Cape Dory 25D
While not the the boats in these ads, they are in very similar condition, so I do plan on putting more money into whichever I choose...

1984 CAPE DORY 25D sailboat for sale in Rhode Island
Good Luck with the search, Take Care!

This is getting stale but I would add a decently maintained Tartan 27' to the list. Bristol too for that matter.
You should be able to get a good deal on an old good looker.

|Waltthesalt||If you can go up to about 12-15K for a well maintained boat there's a number of 30 ft, 70's vintage boats worth looking at: Morgan 30, Pearson 30, Tartan 30 and the venerable Catalina 30. I have a Cal 29 and like it lots.|

I agree with Joe, picked up my 85 tall rig with 600 hours on the engine along with an achillies inflatable and 5hp motor for 10k plus 8 sails all in reasonable condition. No major expenditures. It was dirty but sound. Do your homework and remember elbow grease is cheap.

Now as far as the fun factor? You might have something there.
Where will you be sailing? How many will be with you typically? What is your experience level?
Catalina's make a nice choice, the 27 has a lot more room down below than the 25. You can definitely find a nice C-25 for well under 10K.

Alright...here's a few recommendations without knowing what size you're looking for:
Aquarius Pilot Cutter 24
S2 8.0 (26')
And a few others that might be a reach for under $10k:
Islander Bahama 30
Cape Dory 28
