Getting her convinced to go slow...

My wife and I currently have a Sea Ray 420AC that we greatly enjoy.

Recently though, a Marine Trader 50' Widebody caught my eye. It has the ability to walk all the way around the boat (perfect for the dogs) as well as a full sized fridge and three staterooms.

The wife is all in except for a few "minor" items. First, we would have to build some type of stair system to reach the swim platform. Second, my wife REALLY likes the ability to travel at 16-17kts. if needed.

We have been able to pick up from 8 knots to full cruise to outrun a storm and the ability to run from FL to the Abacos in daylight is a plus.

How do I get over the concern about not going fast?
