I was a sailboater and owner, glad I did it, glad I'm not doing it now. There are a lot of great boating areas where I live. I want to go to them without spending long periods of time on tacks and jibes. There are also a number of fjords in my area and a sailboat really isn't the best vessel in those areas unless they are almost constantly under power, and then in that case you are a slow power boater.
I'm not the very fast power boat kind of guy, but I do like to go fast the first hour of a cruise and the last hour of the cruise coming home. The other hours in between I'm usually putting along at 7 or 8 knots.
Enjoy your new boat when you acquire it.
