The cost of buying and owning something like that will be tiny compared to the cost of broker's commission, depreciation and repairs if you buy the wrong dedicated offshore cruising boat, bang it up learning to sail, and the dump the poor thing in frustration, as way too often is the case with folks trying to buy their 'forever boat' for their first boat.
You are probably correct, in my case I spent 4 years saving $ and thinking about what boat I wanted, and was on this list way back before it moved to SailNet. I've read almost every nautical book published before I bought my boat. As a result I knew what I wanted and have never regretted it.
