boating help

I know almost nothing about boats/boating, and all of my searches have been too broad to yield usable results.  I need help creating three boats. This is set in 1995, around a fictional island south of Bermuda.

1. I need a boat (yacht?) for my viewpoint character. It has to be large enough for him to live on and take out the occasional charter, but small enough that he can plausibly manage it alone. (He has magical help, but the muggle authorities don't know that, so plausible is enough.) The boat would have been purchased in the mid eighties, and be of very high quality, but not flashy. I'm probably going to make up a manufacturer, but need something to base it on.

2. I need a second boat, roughly the same size (but I'm flexible) manufactured in the early nineties that rich young idiots would drive irresponsibly.

3. I need a boat that drug runners would use and would be large enough to hold a couple of passengers. (Google results have been too recent.)

4. Who would be patrolling that area looking for drug smugglers etc? The US Coast Guard? Navy? British Navy?
