I think it would be a good idea to get a boat to cruise around OZ and then a different one for the rest of the trip. The advantage is you will learn what you like and do not like about your boat, then when you step up you will appreciate your next boat even more. Also those are different kind of sailing, coastal is different than bluewater. Either boat can do either sailing but there are compromises.
Cats are great another option that is affordable is something like the Cats designed by James Wharram. I'd really like to try a Tiki 46 in big water as it looks like it would do well.
Have faith that the oceans are going to rise and flood the world, that plague and pestilence brought on by Climate Change is going to punish us for not believing. Please do as they say it is our only hope. :P
