Is fast worth it?

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

To be sure, there is nothing under 30'' faster than PHRF 110 - save the Melges.

Is the quest for speed meaningful in a non-racing world? And shouldn''t qualities like sea-worthiness, comfort, and build take on a higher value in a 6-10 knot world?

It''s all about the ride - isn''t it? I''m just looking for that right combination of exciting day-sailor and trusty cruiser that can tool around in the bahamas for a week or two.
