"it isn't attracting sailors so much as it is those seeking relief or a change".

That's the emerging trend I see. Escapism isn't new but 'living the dream' of living on a sailboat on this popular level, seems new to me. As you point out, it's a short term dream for most. From a dwelling standpoint, it's not a great idea for most people with no experience. Many seem to think the billowing sails and exotic sand beaches in the Ralph Lauren ads, just happen with buying a tired sailboat.
