hjkarten is on a distinguished road
Even if you have the funds for a larger boat, consider that may not be the wisest action. The physical and emotional demands of larger boats may prove too great a burden as you age. Stick with a boat that you can safely and comfortably handle. Compromise is perhaps wise. I have seen a few friends who bought boats that were too large for them as they aged, and sailed less, finally selling the boats and getting out of sailing. Very sad.
