Might want to look at a smaller catamaran. Many smaller catamarans, like the Gemini 105, Iroquois, MaineCat30, TomCat30, and such are going to provide almost as much space as a 40-50' monohull, yet be easier to sail and maintain.
Just a thought.
It would help if you said where you plan on sailing the boat, and what kind of sailing you plan on doing. Also, are you going to be living aboard it?

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.
