You don't say, (nor does your profile) where you are...but you could easily burn your budget completely by just looking, let alone moving a boat from afar...I would start in my own backyard. The good part is that you can usually day trip to at least one decent broker/boatyard or go online to this website's listings, YachtWorld, or Soundings
For quality, quantity and a ready market, you can't beat the East coast of the USA, second Gulf coast, then the west coast.
I don't think anyone includes a couple of tickets for lookers anymore, but I have heard several manufacturers will deduct the coast of a charter of one of their boats, if you buy it within a few months. For sure you can get them to throw in some lessons, whether new or used.
All the best, and keep us posted, you will not find a better group than this.
