My basic suggestion is always the same. Go to Yachtworld.com, or another site, and do some comparison looking. The pictures will give you an idea of interior layout, or lack of it. For the money you mention you can either sailaway, or find a boat that needs some TLC. You will find a huge variety of boats within your price range. Welcome to the sad, but sorry addiction of sailing. Once in your blood it is hard to quit..........lololol
My personal like for a rig is a cutter. Especially if the staysail is roller furling also. Also reefing from the cockpit is good. Going on deck in snotty weather can be avoided. BEST WISHES in finding something to fit you..........
