The first thing I would determine, in your position, is your cruising grounds, how you'll cruise, and what you expect from cruising. Also, what level of ammenities will be necessary. That will go a long way towards determining the type of vessel, and the necessary budget.

For instance, should you decide to do the Great Loop, a power boat makes more sense, as you'd be primarily motoring anyway. Going offshore, I think a sailboat would be a better choice.

Obviously, there's much more to consider, but, in my opinion, that should be your starting point. Good luck in your efforts.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
