Sounds like you have pretty deep pockets, congratulations on a life well lived ! Remember though, fuel is one of the very smallest expenses you will encounter owning an 80' vessel.
Personally, the best advice I can give you is to think smaller. An 80 foot trawler will have the space of a 125 foot sailboat, literally nobody needs that much space.

Since you are way out of my league I can only guess at the expense of owning/operating an 80 foot boat, especially with a crew of two. Probably upwards of $10,000 a month. Just for comparison, my 36 foot Albin costs me monthly about $500 fixed cost up to around $1,000 if something goes wrong or I get "itchy" for a new toy. (That includes fuel, and I use my boat a lot)

Welcome Aboard, keep us posted, remember, we like pictures !!
