I'm 69 and stopped sailing for the same reasons and I got tired of living in a cave. If you going to do much ocean cruising and not fast, a deeper hull rides a little better, holds more fuel and water, maybe bigger cabins, washer and dryer room. Longer and larger isn't always an additional fuel cost.
