My ten cents on this subject you might not limit your cruising thoughts to boats that are somewhat slow...you cna get a feel for the performance of a PSC 31 as it rates PHRF 204, which is pretty slow.
As an alternative, the young Aussie recently did the world single-handed in an S&S 34, a handsome, more accommodating boat that is probably thrirty seconds a mile faster. For this kind of money, you can get into the likes of a CS 36T which would should be good for an additional 30 miles a day.
Certified...in several regards...
