Going to a smaller wheel?

Hi All, I just bought my first "big boat," a Beneteau 361, and the wheel gives very little clearance to get around it. I was thinking of getting a lewmar folding wheel. Is there any reason why I couldn't/shouldn't get a smaller wheel? The existing wheel is 40" or 42", and lewmar sells 30" and 36" folding wheels. FYI, I've never owned a boat with a wheel.

Thanks so much!
