Globe Cutter 38 vs Tayana 37 - pros/cons

I am in research mode for what I hope to be an enjoyable chapter of my life. I am 37, living in Arizona and am 6 months into my new 5 year plan which culminates with my retirement from IT and going cruising for about 3 years.
I lived in Golfito, Costa Rica in '85-'87 and had always wanted to return as one of the sailors that I would talk to at El Puente.
My sister lives in Rio de Janeiro with her husband and their young son (5). These are the two places I most would like to sail. I also have Family in Seattle and Virginia.
My plan is to learn through reading, sailing courses, joining the Tucson sailing club and any other thing I can do over the next 4.5 years. Then I will purchase a boat for my needs. When I have gone where I want on the schedule that reveals itself, I will either keep the boat in San Carlos, Mexico, or sell it. If I keep it, it will be used for a month or so at a time a couple/few times a year.
It is entirely possible that I will come to find over the next 4 years that I do not enjoy sailing, likewise I may never park it once I am aboard. That being said, my research has thus far directed me towards the Tayana 37 as a good representation of what type of vessel might work. Blue water, full keel, canoe stern, adequate tankage, <6' draft, <40', yada yada yada.
Whilst perusing the ads on YachtWorld this afternoon I found the above linked Global Cutter.
My questions include with this boat being 6000# heavier than a Tayana going to make it significantly slower? Are the windows of the raised salon a "no go" for blue water?


Thanks in advance,
Geister

p.s. I cannot post a link to the ad. search "38' Globe Cutter" at YachtWorld...
