You've already gotten a lot of input on chartering and sharing. I don't know if you've chartered before, if not it is a good idea to make sure you want to commit to ownership. IF you decide to purchase a boat there are plethora of good choices in that size range. What is important is to buy a well maintained boat. No matter what brand a poorly maintained boat will cost you a lot more money. If you are a remote owner you want to focus on lower maintenance boats. This means minimum (or no) exterior wood. I'd avoid teak decks and teak windows and doors since these are weak points if maintenance slips. There are lots of opinions on brands, keep in mind what you really will use the boat for and having one fit for purpose.
