what determines a coastal cruiser???

I would like to hear what is the definition of a coastal cruiser and a bluewater boat. I am on a limited budget as are many of those who come here to seek info on buying boats.

I hear an O day is good, then not.. same with Hunter and Columbia and I keep getting advice to spend money I don''t have at the moment. I have more time than money at the present. Prrthead and my self would like some idea of what determines how far a production boat should go off shore..
I want to sail across the Gulf from florida to Mexico....is that beyond what I could expect a production boat to take? I found a good price on a Dehler and here good things from Europeans but not from Americans. I get mixed reviews of Catalina''s too.

What gives?
Help?
