You've gotten some pretty good advice so far. This is your first boat, not your forever boat. You can get paralyzed by the number of choices on the internet, so unless you're committed to a particular (rare) type, close & easy should be a major factor. The distance should be - how far can you comfortably travel? You'll be making multiple trips to look at the boat, as well as to do whatever you need to get the boat ready to get underway, even before you bring it to the marina you've chosen closer to your home. The best boat will be the one that gets you on the water soonest.
