Randy, there is quite a bit in the multihull section about different type, and this should be pursued there.

You're dreaming man.
You want a high tech 41'-53' "two week' cruiser?
I'd like to see you and you 'techy' friends try to actually sail one let alone---well you know where I'm going.
As far as "two people" sailing one well like I said you're dreaming.
IF you have the money buy yourself a 32' Wauquiez Centurian or something similar.
A young man who used to work for me bought himself a Camaro. On the way home the dealership he put it in the ditch twice. The moral? Just because he was able to buy the car didn't mean he was able to drive it.

Get to a boat show

My wife and I are in a similar situation. We have gone to 2 boat shows, Annapolis, and Newport, RI. A lot of the boats in the thread were there, plus a lot more. We have the same features in mind and new a boat that qualifies is 800k to over a million. I would recommend you go to some of the bigger shows, maybe the one in Miami later this year, board the boats and see which one strikes your fancy, then go from there. We like the passport and discovery, although new are over your budget. You may want to step back, find the one you want, then look for it in a 2-5 year old model. Many of the 2-5 year old boats are like new and never left the harbor. Good luck!

Positive thinking should not be a substitute for positive action.

The potential problem with the “half full glass” philosophy is that it may sometimes obscure the fact that the “glass is too large”.

The power of positive thinking is one of the most pervasive myths of our time. It creates totally unrealistic expectations, and fosters a culture of entitlement - as if all you need to do to achieve something is to want it.

The Hippocratic maxim: "before all else, above all, first, do no harm, harm nothing" (primum nihil nocere) suggests that we consider the downside before the upside. Explore the risks before the benefits.

Plan and prepare for the risks, that we may enjoy the benefits (relatively unencumbered).
