Future vessel suggestions

Looking to Purchase a used vessel in near future and any help or suggestions with brands and models would be greatly appreciated.

listed are my search criteria:

semi- live aboard trawler type in the 35 to 45 ft range
operating area will be limited to US Gulf Intracoastal waterway and Gulf coastal areas
fuel efficiency is priority
not interested in fancy accommodations and exotic wood. would like more of an expedition type vessel for exploring, fishing and sightseeing.

which brands to stay away from?

Re: Future vessel suggestions

If you don't want a lot of wood work and varnish don't buy a Grand Banks.
The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.
