Have you considered designing a boat yourself?
Here is the software to use: http://www.washingtonwoodcraft.com/software.html
I once played with it a little, it works similar to Ross Leidy Kayak Foundry.
I don't know exactly how their pricing works - if you have to buy in order to build 1 boat for yourself.
Speaking of hull performance - a single chine hull will feel substantially different from a round one. However, a hull with, say 3 chines (4 panels) will be not much different from a round one, but look better IMHO.
