Go out on a charter or two down there that have boats that are styles you are thinking about. See how it fishes and how comfy it is....
Another option, if you can find it, is to rent a boat for a 1/2 day that is a style you are thinking about. Might be a tough find fairly close to you but I now in the Carolinas, you can usually rent CC's, pontoons, and even open bows and give them a try.
A 24'-26' dual console with hard top or high soft top and side curtains may be a style boat you would be interested in. Some have heads in the passenger consoles, have lots of lounging space up front but, if you get the hard top or soft top and get the side curtains and cockpit enclosures, you can button it up when needed for inclement weather.
Not sure what the used market is like for these as I think they started adding the heads to the side consoles a little more recently.
