DrB will become famous soon enough
I bought the smallest

boat that I could fit (stand up in) in under $30K. At 6' 6", I don't have many options. Pearson 10M and a 34 fit the needs. We ended up with a P10M.

36"-24"-36"

Check out these measurements. The yachting equivalent of 36"-24"-36"

Length of waterline: 32'
Length on deck: 41'
Length overall: 49.5'

A long low-aspect sail plan with a clipper bow, overhanging mizzen boom and REALLY long bowsprit. Built back before everyone charged everything by the foot. Of course now I pay as much moorage for my overhangs as I used to for my old boat.
