Speed,

"My existing sailing experience/knowledge is from smaller sailboats (<20') in protected waters."

Suggest you go out on the open ocean with an experienced skipper in his boat or on a fishing charter boat to find out if you and your wife like it before buying an ocean going boat and finding out later that either of you don't want to spend days on end on the open ocean, which at times can be like being inside an industrial sized cloths dryer.
