Re: Testing the waters, Charleston style
I don't usually get too deep in boat recommendations, but others do. A budget may help them. Your purchase price should be half of what you have, as refit, repairs, upgrades and "I didn't notice that", all add up fast. While not model specific, in order to shorthand, a solid autopilot and all lines lead to the cockpit would be priorities.
If you are just coastal cruising, don't get hung up in whether the boat is designed to sail around the world.
Whatever you do, don't be that guy/gal who lives aboard a boat that isn't actually prepared to sail. If its a dock queen, just get a houseboat.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
