My experience with sea trials and deposits is just as all have described above. However, it is not unheard of for a demo, just as you are looking for. You must understand they are a real pain and probably a brokers last priority. You may simply leave them with your thoughts about needing to know if she sails the way you hope and you might bubble up on their list on a slow day. The odds just aren't good that the two of you will align on that day.
The odds also aren't good that conditions will be those you or your wife want to test on that day either. An experienced booker would also know that and focus their time on efforts with greater odds of success for everyone.
If you are patient, you might pull it off. Good luck.
