Taking the boat is a great way to enjoy the scenic sights in Lake Thun. In winter however, the boat services run on a reduced timetable. Please check the timetable before you start your trip.
Since you have a Swiss Travel Pass, you also have unlimited travel access to train and buses and you can combine this with the boat trip from Interlaken.
There is a bus service (No 21) that takes you around the lake and it stops at most of the major tourist highlights you mentioned. This could be an option for you.
As what Snowman had mentioned in his post, Thun is pretty small and it's an easy walk from the train station or landing dock to the Thun Castle and Schadau Castle.
For your information, the Thun Castle is open only on Sunday between November and January. The Oberhofen Castle museum is closed in winter but the park is open to the public until 22 Dec from 9- 5 pm. Unfortunately St. Beatus' Caves is closed in December. The Hunegg Castle is also non-operational in wintertime.

And to answer your question about luggages, most rail stations have lockers you can rent. They are blue in colour and come in 3 different sizes. The charges for a day's use are between CHF4-6 for a small locker (handbags, backpacks), CHF5-7 for a medium (cabin bags, large backpacks), and CHF7-9 for a large (big suitcases). You can find out more about the luggage services available at this link : www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/practical/luggage
Hope this helps! Enjoy your trip.
