Your budget is high enough that unless you are wanting to go faster than 12kts, you may want to consider more traditional trawlers;
Grand banks, nordhavn, selene, heritage (newer not older ones), maybe even a mainship or some of the other more traditional trawler types etc. that are out there in either a single or twin depending upon size and type. You then get the stability of a keel and better long range effectiveness of less fuel consumption but at a costs of overall top speed.

Grand banks, heritage (36) did build some aft cabin (motoryacht style) configurations.

Sportfish, carvers, silvertons are all fine for cruising and or staying at the dock but at anchor not as comfortable as a boat with a true keel (IE 'trawler'.)
