Where are you going with this question. As written it falls heavily into the 'how long is a piece of string? category.
We all have our preferences that reflect our tastes, budget, crew, experience, venue, and so on. The boat I would want, would probably not be the boat that someone else might want, and vice versa. If money were no object, she would almost by definition need to be custom to get the mix of features that I would like.
