My recommendation to you sir is to give most of your money to Vanguard for a year or so, and to spend a little on renting cruising cats of different ilk, and getting a few brokers to take you for a ride on the thoroughbreds........

Data is one thing, seeing it is another.

BINGO.......As mentioned above fast is fun, but I believe you will slow it down on a passage. Fast is hard on you, and the boat. ESPECIALLY single-handing will be even more so. Have you done any single-handing of any distance? Sell your stuff, and take your time on a purchase. It sounds like more experience will be helpful in your decision on a purchase. BEST WISHES in finding a boat to serve you well..........i2f

SAILING is not always a slick magazine cover!
BORROWED..No single one of is as smart as all of us!

Gunboats for weekend luxury performance.
Outremers for top performance aft cockpit design with more spartan interiors.
Atlantics for a blend of performance and cruising.

Take a look at the Outremer many are currently available worldwide and several very solid older models that won't force you to sell all your other toys.
