 54' canting keel "cruising" boat replete with futuristic space interior, including rotating navigation/galley pod!

Probably pretty affordable...

A Bit of Nautical (and Literary) Trivia:

The old ships used to depth sound the old-fashioned way of course, and that meant "heaving the lead". As the sailor heaved the lead (tipped with tallow to test the material of the bottom) he called out based on the number of fathoms by marks on the line. When not on a mark he would call out "by the deep" such as "by the deep, six" ( the origin of the phrase "Deep Six"). And when hitting on a mark the sailor would call out "By the mark, six!".

On the Mississippi River in the 1850's not only did they sound the depth this way but they used the old-fashioned words for certain numbers. So, if the crew on a river-boat heaved the lead and came back with two fathoms on the mark he might holler to the Captain "By the Mark, Twain! "

And thus Samuel Langhorne Clemens took the pen-name by which he is more commonly known.
