Hello fellow central New Yorker! I assume you've already found and spent time at Yachtworld, right? If not, that's your best bet.
The first boat I thought of that fit your criteria was the Grand Banks 32 you already mentioned. Grand Banks makes a nice boat, albeit with lots of beautiful wood to maintain. There are loads of people here with GBs that would be happy to talk about them.
The next thing I thought of was this, which is a Transpac Eagle 32.
I've never been aboard a 32, but I have been aboard a 40 footer of the same type, and I loved it. That would be a front runner for me, if I was in your shoes.
