If I had to pick a boat with a 200,000 budget for the kind of voyaging that you are considering, I would probably either go the heavy route with something like a Valliant 40 or Peterson 44, or go the performance route with something like a J-44 or Farr 44, but then again, I'm not saying that you have to go the performance route. Its just what I would do.
