Michael's suggestion is a good idea... as most people do not keep their first boat for a long time. Don Casey points out in his book This Old Boat that many times the boat that people end up keeping for a long time is the second boat—which is bought using the information they gain from the first boat—what they like, dislike, want, can't stand, need, etc.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
