If it were me, I would keep the boat you got which works well for you there, and I would fly to Tortola and charter for two weeks, split the boat costs with another couple of people.
I second 2Gringos opinion. I am considering the same thing. We have a Catalina 22 in Wisconsin. I am thinking of selling the C22 and getting a small/fun boat I can keep for free hoisted in my garage (Laser or whatever). Then spending the mooring fees saved on a yearly charter to warm places. Then you could sell the big towing truck and get a little Prius... unless you plan on stopping

Have you looked at the WETA? Looks like a really fun garage boat.

Weta Marine - High Performance Family Trimarans

I'd probably buy one, but we are saving our cash for a Gemini..

we HAVE to cruise the Caribbean..

Trailerable

Folks around my neighborhood trailer their Catalina 27's to Huntington lake for weekend sailing. Lots of stout stuff out there under 27'. There's a Catalina 25 on local craigslist for $2,300. (not saying these are bluewater cruisers, however at least one Catalina 27 has circumnavigated.) One note of caution. The trailers are a lot harder to find than the boats. If you could find a trailer first, then you can shop bargain in-water boats from owners tired of slip fees. Otherwise, try to get a boat/trailer combo. Do not buy the boat first and then go looking for a trailer.
