Well, my C22 can be quickly trailered to unique sailing destinations with a comfortable Volvo station wagon, it's easier to sail, and needs less maintenance. If money was no object I might (or might not) get a bigger boat or better equipment, but I doubt I'd have more fun as a result.

Someday I might want a bigger boat if I have time to do a long bluewater trip, if I have the option to live-aboard, or if I had kids and needed more room.
