Then you have a wife...and has it is expected it is an important part of the equation in what regards to chose a cruising boat and it is only far to be that way.

I remember some time ago on the interesting sailboat thread someone that wanted a boat for circumnavigating. His personal choice, if the wife was not coming along was something fast, adapted to solo sailing. If I am remembering correctly he was thinking in something like an Elan 350. We ended up convincing his wife (good for them) and the compromise was a fast big voyage catamaran with a nice interior and lots of interior space
