If you have handled a 35 footer then a 35 foot sailboat will be no problem as you are already aware of the cost versus size for moorage, and docking it is slightly different but nothing you can not manage. As for being sailing, there is no big learning curve over a smaller sailboat versus a 35 footer... Just my opinion having jumped from a 27 to a 38 footer myself. My challenge was docking not the actual handling it while in open water...
