It's really difficult for anyone to give you advice without knowing a lot more about your concept
of "cruising". There's a boat out there for everyone, and my choice is not necessarily yours.
There are lots
of discussions in our archives
on various kinds of boats. Try using this CF-specific search engine
(the built-in "Search" doesn't work very well). Some well-chosen keywords should get you started. Then, you'll no doubt have some questions that you can post in the appropriate forums
