Iím a sailboater, so I canít give you much advice about power boats. But, I can tell you that you see a lot of U.S. based power boats in the Bahamas
. The vast majority of the liveaboard
power boats you see there are trawlers. There are many different manufacturers. But in general, and if in good condition, they are good coastal cruisers and are suitable for occasional off shore use.
style boat will have considerably more living space than a comparable length sailboat. A 48-52' trawler
is a lot of boat for two people. And, a new one would be very expensive. If you are considering an older boat, there are many at least potentially good ones available at reasonable prices. Eg.:
