Why full displacement? The list is pretty short and a semi-displacement run slow will give pretty good fuel economy.

My 40 will get 3.3NMPG at 6.3 knots...if I slowed her to 5.5...probably would get over 4.0NMPG...

I'm not saying that's going to be as good as a FD hull...just cutting your list to just FD hulls under 40 may really limit what you really want or can buy.
