I would also look at getting few issues of Living Aboard magazine. One boat that is bluewater capable, relatively reasonably priced and relatively roomy for its size is an Alberg 30. Up until just recently two couples who blog were living aboard their two Albergs, but one couple has since sold it and gotten a slightly larger boat.
Be aware that finding marinas with "liveaboard" slips is getting more and more difficult.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
