Boating in Florida or the Bahamas is a totally different experience from the Caribbean. "The Caribbean" is a large piece of water with different conditions in different areas. The prime factors are wave conditions that are typically choppy 4-7ft. Trade Wind seas and open water passages that require substantial distances between shelter and fuel. Discussion on an appropriate powerboat would require more info as to intended use, area of use, and budget issues and the captains experience. Also the discussion should take more time and space than a reply on a forum.
