It's not very classic looking but for a narrower "Cat that doesn't look like a Cat", you might consider an Aspen.
Or something kind of off the wall: check out an Elling E4. a gently used one can certainly be had in your price range and meets many of your desires.
Check out the AT395 with a 3'5" draft. Remember, the draft of all boats are measured either by design or almost empty. Start by subtracting 2ft of any recently built boat you look at. Now every builder adds in the swim platform to the AOL, unless you get an older boat. My 2008 AT is documented as a 34ft but, by todays standards, it is a 36ft boat. The current AT36 are identical to the 34ft. It just might make a difference if you pay taxes on it. Consider documenting the boat so you don't have to mess with those state required
There is a broker up in your neck of the woods too. East Coast something. If you are interested, I will get the proper name of the brokerage.
It is also the residence of the east coast guru on ATs. He knows where all the wires go and has the approval of the factory too!!! Put the boat in his hands and you will not regret it. I get to see him once a year in FL and it is this weekend too!!!
