Yep then go for it, the younger you do this the better. That was the very good advice I got from my Dad and he is correct. Waiting to retire....well that might never happen.
There are so many boats to choose from that I too would suggest looking at the very low end and work your way up. For living on I'd lean towards 30' plus but know of at least one guy that lived on a Contessa 26. Less room than a small shed but he liked the boat and it was cheap.
No boat you can afford is going to be as nice as having your own room, what makes it better is that you like it. So buy the boat you like.
