You asked earlier about which boat would work for that and your $$ of 10k or so. My first choice would be the Albin Vega 27, which has a proven track record for long passages, fits your money requirements, and has a loyal following. Trick may be finding one in decent shape that someone will let go of.

Also, I would check out a thread here called The Philosophies of Cruising in our cruising section.
