And throw Fantail into the mix as it was a very pretty boat

Fantail is perfect.  I remember being passed by Fantail when I was a kid in a Round Waiheke Race.  It looked perfect then and still looked immaculate in Bon Accord Harbour last summer. 
Some of the best proportioned yachts ever designed.

I've crewed on Grand prix New Cal to Brisbane, sailed on Riada II to the islands twice and done 10s of thousands of miles in Riada locally and to and from the Pacific. I think L D was one of our greatest designers, a sad day indeed.
