If the trip is a one time deal you may be better chartering a boat OR paying to have it moved

I cant think of a any trailer boats that really have the water and fuel tanks to kick around the bahamas
You can make it work on a small boat... but I agree with Tommays that you might be better off trying to find a boat in FL or even buying one you like up there and having it shipped. Worst case, ship her East and take her down the cut to the Bahamas.

Just my opinions, but I have owned a Catalina 250 (trailerable). It is a good boat, but I sure wouldn't want to live aboard her for any length of time.
