Default What planes faster...?

My wife has progressed quite rapidly on her GO170 and I have a question. If we dont want to buy a bigger sail than the 7,5 we have now, will she plane faster if we trade in the Go170 to a carve 145 or a GO 139? She weighs 62kgs and is capable of sailing in the harnes and the front foot strap.
I have read several places that the reduction of surface in contact with the water plays a role when getting planing, and since she is quite ligth and does not need the 170 liters or 90cm of width I hope she migt get plaing with less effort and perhaps have more fun on a slightly smaler board.
