Default Ultimate Offshore Boat

Heres a question I have. If money wasn't the main object, what new or late model boat would you buy if wanted to run in the oceans off the florida coast as well as the great lakes "safely" and be able to spend a week or more at a time aboard, (in a marina). Its got to be fast as well as dependable, I think it should be 40 + feet w/ twins or trips ? supecharged or not? 100 mph possible? I've not yet got to go off shore florida and want to in the near future.... what will it take?????

46 Black Thunder SC extended cockpit, with twin 1050's, #6's, and all the amenities. Checked one out in FLL and loved it. Especially for extended stays aboard.
