The size of the boat does directly effect the cost of cruising and maintaining. However, with all due respect to Capta, there is no such direct relation to comfort, at least when it comes to the motion of the vessel (to be fair, it sounds like Capta was talking more about other creature comforts like hot showers, less cramped quarters, etc...). A 40 foot Beneteau is probably going to be a good deal less comfortable than a Crealock 34.

Out of curiosity, Kbbarton, don't you own a Crealock 34?
