Welcome,

What boats have you seen that you like? You seem to already have formed a preference so surely you've got a few in mind?

I suggest you do some searches among the Cruiserlog.com topics and you'll find several discussing blue water boats, sizes, and so forth. You can use our search engine or do a custom one at google with your keywords and limiting the search to site:cruiserlog.com

Example:
Bluewater boats site:cruiserlog.com

Will get you some hits

Fair winds,
