what determines a coastal cruiser???

I think Troy and I are being really particular because we''re trying to find the best bang for our buck. I will admit, cabin niceities are a plus for me (especially with a less than enthusiastic fiance) but safety and strengh are the most important.

Let me ask this and maybe this will help...what are some good numbers to look for? What is a good displacement weight for a coastal crusier that will do occasional longer hauls (Bahamas)? What are good lengths and beams? I''m looking now at a 27'' S@ but it seems lightweight. I need something that drafts no more than 5'' because of my home area. Any suggestions or advice on particular numbers to look out for?
