Default Offshore cruisers only

My friend here in okla has a home in the keys. He is looking for a large boat, (not a go fast) to make some trips to the Bahamas, one day, Cuba maybe etc...He know very little about boating and is wanting to learn all he can before making a purchase. I have been trying to steer him towards a center console (midnight express type etc...) with outboards. He thinks he does not want a 50 foot plus sea ray, hatteras, etc...He can afford what ever he wants, and he want to take his family and grand kids out to snorkel, fish just enjoy the water.

What I'm looking for is some neat web sites that he can research out like OSO. He is also looking for some good reputable sites to buy bank repos from.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

This one;

Can be ordered with trips but twins are enough for your friend. Very stable in oceans swells and at anchor, easy to operate and clean, and built like a tank.

Long range, open cockpit, shallow draft. Faster than a Fountain Express...
Diesels or outboards

44 Concept with trip Verado's , cheap, good mpg at cruise, low maintence, always ready to go (turn key) when he gets of the plane, good cruise speed and large enough to stay on if the weather turns bad ! take a look
