Which Boat .. What to do

Hi guys
I will be moving to Jacksonville FL area soon,
I have some sailing experience. Sail a Nacra 19' and loved it and helps my friends learn to sail prindle 20 and hobbie 20's and 16's.( about 17-20 years on CATS and I also Windsurf, Never sailed a monohull and ZERO BLUE WATER TIME

Im looking for a the right first Monohull.
It will be sailed in Jacksonville area. I was planning on using it on St. Johns River mainly ( Scared of Blue water never did it) River is about 1.5 to 4 miles wide and it is VERY LONG, current is not strong.

Which boat is the question of the day

A boat that i could take family on 3 adults 1 kiddo.
Head would be nice
Prep to sail including stepping mast under 2 and half hours. Would prefer to not have to pay slip fees. I have a big truck to move a fairly heavy boat.
I would love the advice of experienced Monohull Sailors
Budget is 25k May be able to get up to 30 ( if wife loves it)

thanks so much
and
God Bless
