Sailing Sailboats are a whole different animal. If you want shorthanded crew, the best bet are Hallberg Rassy. These are extremely well built sailboats, will take a beating and excellent in light winds to storm conditions. They are luxury interiors as well, you will spend most time docked. Sailboats are constant work outside in the weather...and getting beat up regularly. The 62 foot HR has some great push button options to check out, hydralic Vangs, etc, and can be operated shorthanded by you and your wife. HR will take care of you when the sea gets rough....that is what you need, especially a sailboat. After HR the nordhavn is bullet proof battleship, its a motorsailer so you lose some sailing points, but gain security and motoring resource.
