It does seem that with trimarans there's either out and out racers or chunky cruisers but not much middle ground, is that a fair comment?

 

The search continues...

Some would suggest that the Farriers are the middle ground, as in original (1980s/1990s) concept they were somewhat conservative in relation to the full on race tris of the time. That said there is quite a performance spread between the A versions (more cruisey), R versions and the handful of all carbon rockets that have been built, let alone the various Corsair versions.

There’s a Newick in Whangarei that i’ve Looked at, very tidy. Not sure of performance but it’s a cool looking boat. On TM still been on for a while so possibly negotiable.

Krisis is probably for sale panmure boating club should know. A quick older tri that has had cruising additives

Blaydon Racer is a Young trimaran withe twin masts called a Sketch and was built using West System in Tauranga by the late Dooley Wilson for his son Nick Wilson who still lives in Tauranga on Devonpor

There's a multi in Tauranga called Ladyhawk, is this the type of tri or is it too big and slow https://www.boatdesigner.co.nz/reviews/bw2001.htm

Ladyhawk is a member on here, but you are talking a whole different budget for something like her, even if there was one available. She was built by Richard Edlin, he is currently doing a rebuild on another tri, shes looking great! I'm sure he'd like to build you another!

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!
