If you are worried about speed, then you need to get the powerboat.
A 22ft. sailboat will likely sail nearly the same speed as your Mistral. Motoring may get you another knot if you push it.
Nothing in your price range will sail and match the speed of your 50hp powerboat except a windsurfer or maybe a Hobiecat. Tough to sleep, cook and do potty on either of those though.

For us it is about the journey, not the destination.
