Re: Minimum extended cruising requirements.

A cat doesn't have to be expensive, as long as you're not all caught up in the latest boat show/ charter company's shiny wet dream.
A Catalac 9M or Gemini 3000 might be the ticket. Both can be found under $50K, both are easy to handle, and both pack more room and creature comforts than the average 36' monohull. You can't load them as heavily as a mono, but many folks have satisfactorily lived aboard and cruised the caribbean in both for years.

And it can be really nice to have guests at the opposite end of the boat, in the opposite hull.
