Best Coastal Cruiser 38-47'

Hi all. After reading some of the posts and maybe I've missed one, I'll try to narrow my search requirements. I'm looking for a sailboat in the 38-47 foot range for a cruise from Maine to Key West, June-October with multiple stops, obviously living aboard for extended time periods. There is a possibility I will be sailing down to the USVI after Key West, so light "blue water" applications may be in the works. I would like to spend <$150k and have a center console, draft <6 feet, and just to give you an idea, I like the Catalina 400 and of course 440 with a wing keel, but I'm looking for suggestions on other manufacturers and models that I should consider. I am also looking to equip it with a wind generator, solar panels, and possibly bio diesel (optional). Autopilot required.

Thanks for any suggestions you all may have
