Default Electronics Package Recommendation

Hey Guys - I'm about to pull the trigger on a used 2005 Robalo 225. Boat will be used mainly for getting my family over to the beach (Fire Island - NY), as well as some fishing (oldest is 7 and is just starting to get into it). The current boat has a Garmin GPSMap 498, and a VHF radio (antenna is broken - would need to replace).

If money was not a limitation (even though it is!) - what would you recommend for this boat. I'm a novice to boating - so I could really use some guidance.

I would want something with a GPS, Depth Finder, Fish Finder - would love weather reports. May possibly be running at night.

I've looked at various Garmins - not sure what the heck they all do - they all sort of look the same!

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
