To throw my two cents in...
The O'Day 37 is a center cockpit boat. Has good reviews and they are cheap for their size.
Also look at the Gulfstar 36, 41 and 44 center cockpits. Older boats but solid glass and inexpensive. I look at a Gulfstar 36 as a liveaboard at one point. Quite a few cruisers have sailed these boats across oceans. There a Gulfstar 36 in my marina that I cast longing eyes towards whenever I see it.

|kwaltersmi||One of the smallest cc boats is, to my eyes, a thing of beauty (Nor'Sea 27), although it certainly doesn't meet the OP's needs.|

Bavaria Ocean, Najad, Halberg-Rassy and a lot more that I think it will not interest you because probably you will not find them in America.
Sailingdog, I agree that small center cockpit boats are just ugly, but a very well designed one can be very nice with 38ft:
Najad 380 Classic
But I agree, you said "Most" and most under 40ft are just ugly

I forgot about the Northern 37. There's a fixer upper in Kingston listed at less than $25K, if memory serves.
Found it. Even cheaper than i remembered.
