Actually a power-sailor might be exactly what you are looking for. With your health issues the power boat is probably what you need. On the days when the conditions are right you can raise the sails until you no longer feel like it. The power-sailor should have larger fuel tanks so extended cruising will be more feasible. As an added bonus since you are new to sailing you wont know how horrible these things really sail. If you were a life long sailor and then went the power-sailor route you would be very frustrated every time you raised your sails.

I don't have any personal experience with this type of boat but they have a devoted following. Especially since most people power a lot more than they like to admit. I am not sure if they have hit this price range yet on the used market you but Island Packet started selling a motor sailor a few years back.
