Nobody has mentioned it but I'd be reading on sailing/seamanship for couples, read about others mistakes before making your own, go to some sailing schools singly and as a couple, a school could help your wife a lot. You are in a great area to be looking for boats, dont get hung up on local, as you can see a couple hundred miles north or south can show you a lot more then you have local which is a lot. You can probably find a course or two down Fla way for a winter excursion and give you both time to think things over, myself in your shoes I think I'd be looking for a 34-35' boat, more amenities, and able to do more sailing in. But thats me. Not you. Make a list of what each of you wants in a boat and then make it into one list. Maybe do this after the courses.
