Florida is definitely cheaper than Hawaii. And housing will generally be cheaper the further you are from the water.

Ft Pierce, which has an excellent (IMHO) inlet, straight, wide and deep, and about an hour from docks to open water. It's an overnight hop from Miami.

Miami has two Inlets. The Government cut which is what all the commercial and cruise shipping use, and Cape Florida (the one I use).

Lake Worth (Palm Beach area) is between the two, and a popular jump off point to the Bahamas.

If what you're looking for is more of a base, from which to go on long trips, you might want to look further north.
