What to Look for in a Boat for Long-Term Cruising

"You've hit the nail on the head by saying that what one intends to do with the boat dictates what that boat should be. This is key. If I was going to cruise the Bahamas, for example, I would take a catamaran; i.e.: something with shoal draft and lots of outdoor living spaces. If I was planning long ocean passages I would want something more robust with vast amounts of storage capacity. Draft would not be my main concern."
