Re: A bluewater live-aboard for under $20k

Welcome to the Forum.

There are some good boats out there. Just research what you like and go look at them. You have a better idea of what works for you. I'm 6'5" and didn't expect to find a boat that I can fully stand up while in the cabin and the boat I have won't allow me that unless I'm standing with an open companion way hatch.

If you want to stand, you can always go on deck.

I know the Albin Vega and CD27s are popular. The CD27s may cost a bit more than your budget is allowing. A CD25, maybe. Like Barefoot says, there are many Flickas and other boats out there. Since you're starting off, find something that will work for now and as your funds and your experience grows, you can then see what you really want if/when you upsize to a larger boat.

Good luck in your search.
