Inland and River Motorsailer

We are looking to retire in the next year or two. After retirement we will be living in the Pickwick lake area on the Tennessee River. Planned cruising will be on the river/lake systems, up and down there Tenn-Tom to Gulf, longer trips to the Keys/Bahamas, and the Loop at some point.

I like what I see looking at motorsailers. I have been reading some on the Schucker 436. It has 3.6" draft, 40-42' bridge clearance, decent size single diesel, sails more for motor assistance, deck stepped mast, and good price range (I am seeing 50K- 85K in searches).

Curious on others thoughts on a motorsailer for inland/river? Also, suggestions on other possible make/models?
