Ummm.. a lot of it depends on what boat you get... how old it is, where it is moored/docked, what kind of insurance you get for it... and so on. Maintenance costs will often be affected as well... A brand new boat will generally have lower maintenance costs, as will a boat that was recently re-fitted or upgraded, but a 5-10 year old boat may have some very major repairs and maintenance issues, like new standing rigging and sails coming up shortly.
Transportation to final berth
Long-term periodic costs
Bottom Paint sodablasting/scraping (if using a hard epoxy paint)
These are just a partial rough list of the various areas that you'd have to cover.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
