boats similar to a kelly peterson 44/46

I have found the sailboat that I have begun saving funds for but as time goes by I begin to wonder what new sailboat would be of similar quality and characterstics.
The boat I have in mind is a kelly peterson 44/46 cutter rigged sloop. Is there a boat that would be a 2005 version of this classic sailboat.

Thanks in advance
john

A similar boat, built as strongly would probably cost about 750k in US dollars or more. That's just one reason why the KP 44/46 remains so popular.

Instead, for maybe 150k, you can have a well equipped KP44 in great shape, or a KP46 for maybe 200k. Do you really want to spend a half million dollars more just to have a new boat?

Current production mid 40' blue-water Center Cockpit boats that i can think of:
Hylas 46, Passport 45, Tayana 42, Caliber47, IP48, Moody 46, Contest44

Probably a few I've missed before you get into the statosphere of Oyster, HR, Swan, Hinckley, Shannon etc.
