Default Blue Water Ketch 35-36' under $50K ?

Dear all,
Need you advice on what brand to look for a strong, not very old GRP ketch around 36' that can be acquired for $50K or less in hope to invest no more then $10K to set sail
Please also share your ketch sailing experience!

I am thinking about Jeanneau Gin Fizz Ketch :
Jeanneau Gin Fizz 37 Review : Bluewaterboats.org
37' Gin Fizz Ketch

With this boat I am worried about potential problems with balsa deck. Bulkhead may have signs of delamination and should be carefully sounded. Also the keel bolts should be inspected, or better yet, X-rayed.
I would be happy to get comments from Gin Fizz owners regarding this boat. Thanks!
