Distance considerations when buying a boat

Newbie considering a first purchase in the 28 to 30' class (used).

Boats are advertized globally but what is a good practical radius to consider for a starter purchase? You may have a nice vessel 1000 miles away but it is wise to think about trailering or sailing such a long way to home marina? In other words, does the long distance diminishes the deal?

What is the maximum length that can be trailered? Is that costly or regulated in unique ways?

I am looking at a boat 2 hours away by sea or one that is 24 hours away by truck!
