It's more about the weight and the intended use. A 4 hp outboard is going to be fine for a 24 foot sailboat, esp if the primary use is simply getting out of the marina/ramp area to where you can set the sails, and the occasional return trip if the wind dies.

For more prolonged trips against wind and tide you may wish for a bit more power. Time will tell. In the meantime you'll appreciate the lightweight 4 hp.
