Depth Gauge vs. Fishfinder

I''m looking to replace a depth gauge and transducer. In looking for a new unit, it seems like depth gauges and fishfinders are comparable in price while fishfinders offer many more features. For example: fish location, bottom contour, and bottom hardness indications (not to mention water temp and speed). In comparison, most depth gauges only present you with a number. Is there any reason why most sailboats have a depth gauge rather than a fishfinder?

Thanks
