    Re the Barbican 33, there is a detailed description with lots of photos on Yachtsnet -

    She was available with either a centerboard (which does not intrude into the accommodation) or bilge keels.

    The Atlantic Clipper 36 shares the same hull form, but is very different in every other aspect.

    Thanks for passing that on bajansailor. Now that Atlantic Clipper 36 is a floating cabin if I've ever seen one. That's quite a design change. I would think the Barbican 33 would handle better especially in stronger winds.

    As regard Jeanneau and within your budget, you can have a look at the Sun Fizz model, 651 were built 1980 to 1986, in fin keel version (draft 1,95 m) but also some (few, I am afraid) in keel-centerboard version (draft 1,35 m / 2,15 m), here is the technical data of the keel-centerboard version and 10 offers from ~ 25 KEuros, inc. one with lifting keel (at 55 KEuros unfortunately) :
