I posted above that all boats are compromises. If the boat gets to be so big to please "the wife" that you can't afford to buy or operate it, you haven't gained anything, you have lost.
My wife is perfectly happy with "our little boat" and she's happy using the shower in the head or on the swim platform. Usually, if the wife (or the husband) enjoys using the boat for whatever you use it for, they will be willing to compromise on things. Of course you have to buy the right boat for the purpose in the first place.
Your mileage may differ.
