The problem with boats like the Valiant is that they are way too deep for south Florida. In that area a keel/centerboard like the Bristol is an excellent option. We went through the same search for my Father (from Sarasota) ten years back and he ended up with Brewer 12.8 cutter which is a keel/cb 42 footer. We have been extremely impressed with his boats for the kind of think you are contemplating.
