I think Roger gets closer to asking the right question. As I posted here earlier (in one of my rare appearance in this thread), the reason these threads rarely produce useful numbers is b/c people are comparing apples to orangutans. There is no general answer. It depends...

It depends on:
  • each person's lifestyle,
  • the size of boat,
  • the age of boat,
  • crew size and age,
  • their lifestyle choices,
  • where they are cruising,
  • how they are cruising,
  • their schedules,
  • etc, etc, etc.
To answer to the "how much does it cost" question you first need to specify all these things, and probably a lot more. Or to borrow from fine literature, you need to know the Ultimate Question before you can understand the Ultimate Answer .

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
