You have a 180 lit board, you are planing, you want to sail on the coast, and want a board you won't outgrow for a while (so Go is out of the question I'd say). The last part means that you'll struggle a bit in the begining but don't let that put you off. I think I see a healthy dose of enthusiasm in your post, so go smaller (relative to your weight of course).
Not bigger than, say, a Carve133 (around 70cm width) or similar.
