Agree with buying local. We found enough boats on the Chesapeake that it didn't make sense to go outside of the area. Then we figured out how much time we could take off work to sail a boat back to our marina in one trip and used that as our maximum distance. Fortunately the boat we bought was four hours' sail away.

Another option would be to make short hops over subsequent weekends if you have a driver to get you to and from the marinas.
