Wanting to go offshore in 2 yrs - buy right boat now ?

i too plan to purchase a cruising sailboat or catamaran as soon as i can find a suitable craft. i am going to look at a 33'' prout quest tomorrow. i like the shallow draft & no heel of a cat but like the price & weight of a monohull. we plan to sail to the bahamas & south perhaps in time as far as costa rico. i am tyring to notice from articles the types of craft people are cruising on. price of course is a factor but i expect to have between $50-80,000 invested in a cruise equipped sailer. i so far believe tartan, pearson, prout, to be capable craft. i would like opinions on endeavor, irwin, ericson, & morgan. also i would appreciate pointers on items to watch for on cruise ready craft.
