As far as living on board, everyone has different needs and expectations. I know people that have lived, and cruised, aboard 30' sailboats and find it a perfect fit, others need a 50 plus foot power boat.
Much of it has to do with what your use to on land life. Big house, 2 car garage, big yard with a pool, etc.... The only way to duplicate that on the water is get a really really big boat
Are you keeping a land base, or are you chucking it all for the live aboard life style? We chose to chuck it all and embrace the live aboard life style head on. Sold or gave away everything, and I mean everything, when we moved onto a 46 footer. No fine china, no massive media room, no furniture, you get the idea. The stress of land life went away when all of those "things" that we had acquired over the years were gone. Removing the excess baggage from our life allowed us to breath.
Some have a hard time doing what we did, it was right for us but may not be for you.

I was just reading your post and replies. Did you end up buying something? Maybe you posted it somewhere else on this forum. I live in Canada and I looked for a live aboard type of boat for 5 years deciding on the right boat. I was looking for up to 50'. I had looked at dozens of boats. You might want to consider an older 500CPMY with Dingy lift. I almost bought one.
I wasn't aware of the 456 MY and as soon as I learned of this model, I went down to Connecticut and found my Perfect Yacht! it was like a miracle taking place , the right boat , the right time, the right Broker and meeting the fine Gentleman first owner, all coming together at the right time!
I hope you found your perfect boat but if you are still looking , I'm sure Your Perfect Yacht will find you!
I'm sorry that you lost your Wife to cancer.
