Don't take this the wrong way, but are you sure you don't just need a cruising powerboat?
Thanks but no.

Thoughts? Check or tic box somewhere?
I totally agree with your approach. You are exactly right. There is a lengthy and steep learning curve with boat ownership.

The mechanics of sailing are not that complex. Racing, cruising and boat ownership are complex and require a base of knowledge, along with good common sense and judgment.

When you have a broker to recommend to me just let me have the details. Didn't want to hurry you.

Sorry, I saw from your profile that you are in SE USA. It would be best to get someone fairly local and I am in Toronto area. Ask around locally for recommendations. Use yachtworld and here before then to decide on mono or cat. You have to start the broker with that I think. If you have any specific questions let me know.

Re: Tic box for buying a boat

The hardest part of boat buying is projecting how you'll use the boat. Use, more than anything, dictates what to buy. Where you live dictates the 'how' you'll use the boat. Coastal cruising, back bay sailing, they're both adventures and both can get you into trouble. 'Safe' is always a good start in boat buying.
Cheers!

Jobberone,

If you're at the Strictly Sail Miami show stop by the author's corner to chat for a few minutes.

I'll be there with my book - Boating Secrets: 127 Top Tips to Help You Buy and Enjoy Your Boat. It's comprised of 11 interviews with marine industry experts on everything from buying your boat to making a living as a professional sailor.

Here's the website with some sample audio interviews:
