Good luck with that.
Just like picking a man to marry is not an emotional decision.
Good bone structure, good teeth, solid career, good family.
No emotions necessary.

I do know what you mean though.
When you walk down the dock or dinghy away from the mooring there is a tendency to look back over your shoulder at your boat.

If she doesn't put a smile on your face, fill you with a little bit of pride, then she's simply not worth having.

Yeah, you have to check out all the systems. Yeah you have to make sure the numbers work on some level.

But at the end of the day EVERY boat is an emotional purchase.

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau
