I don't think that you have any unrealistic expectations, provided you're looking at boats 30-35' LOA. I doubt you'll be able to get anything decent above that size range for your budget. I would also recommend that you keep at least 15% of your total budget reserved for upgrades, repairs and refitting the boat. Most boats will need some changes to be setup the way you want it to be.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
