Re: yes another help me find the perfect boat....
Welcome to SN and best of luck on your future plans...
but I'm thinking that anyone who still calls the 'head' a bathroom is unlikely to be ready to circumnavigate in a couple of years... It sounds to me like you are both currently non-sailors, but I'd be happy to be corrected on that.
Your budget, as mentioned, is more appropriate for a 35-40 footer than what you're thinking now. Which, btw, I think is just fine for a couple. More manageable, keeps costs down considerably.
