Design choices 34 to 38ft

I'm in the market for a new boat and would like to find a source of design choices to perhaps find designs that I have not heard of. My preferences are: Solid F/glass, Sloop, Broad beam carried well aft, fin keel, skeg hung rudder, tiller, low cabin top to flush deck, sugar scoop transom. All ideas welcome.

Re: Design choices 34 to 38ft

Try:
- Sailboat Links, Sailing sites, Sailboat Class Association List photos or drawings and specification on 700+ sailboats. I find I have use the "Entire Site Search" as the "Search Options" do not work for me.
"New Search" allows to search on
SEARCH OPTIONS Units: Boat: Min. LOA: Max. LOA:
- I use Sail Calculator Pro v3.53 - 2500+ boats with 2,500+ sailboats to compare two boats.

Cheers
