Powerboat Cruising info needed

Too late - sounds like you are in love.
Flopper stoppers - so far as I know only work at anchor. Not when you''ll need then in a beam sea. Though 12 foot beam is better than some.
One example of the problems you may have.
When I had my wooden classic -1938 45 ft the yard I was in would not use the travel-lift to haul her - was afraid that she could break with all the weight on only two points
instead I had to use a railway. Maybe you''ll find a yard that will use travel-lift and that is good because working on an incline is much less fun than on level. But remember both are on your back.
Good Luck Mate.
