Sailboat advise please...?

Hello Everyone,

I want to buy a sailboat capable of extended trips on open water maybe even from USA to ASIA. I think a longer boat would be more comfortable 42-46 foot length with 2 berths and 2 heads. I was looking in a price range around 100K hoping for that kind of money to get up to date navigation electronics but I didn't find anything I liked. I was trying to find a year of about 1980-1990.

How much do you think I need to pay for a sea-worthy sailboat? I have seen boats priced at 50K and lower and if I got a cheaper boat I might be better off to upgrade the electronics myself. I also like a center cockpit with one berth fwd and one aft and I don't know enough about styles to prefer one over another like ketch, schooner and others but I'd like a fast comfortable boat.

Any ideas? Sorry If I did not provide enough info for replies
