Thanks all, great suggestions and comments. In relation to the previous posts and in no particular order:
Ladyhawk: Read that article last year, if my current investments come through, as they are bound to do (Lotto, and an offer from a nice gentlemen in a West African country whom I met on the interwebs) then she would be the kind of boat I'd be into like a flash. For the meantime though, way out of my price range I suspect.
Blaydon Racer: A beautiful looking trimaran which has obviously been very well looked after. For me though, I think the maintenance effort would be considerable and also, as I'm looking for a boat I could single hand occasionally she does look a bit tricky with the ketch rig.
Hyper: Interested in this boat and probably most aligned with my wish list from those I've seen over the last year. Concern I have is that she needs TLC and I'm unsure how the Duracore has lasted over the years. If anyone knows the boat I'm interested in their opinion.
Farrier/Corsair: F32/33 or C36/37 would be right at the top of my list but as I think someone mentioned, they are a bit pricey, which is nice if you own one but not so much if you are looking for one. I would assume around NZ$200K?
There was a Crowther Buccaneer 33 (I think) that was on TM last year, does anyone know the boat and/or be able to comment. I don't think she sold and is in West Harbour.
Anyhoo, really appreciate the input from everyone, many thanks!
