I went through the same nonsense for many years in OZ and NZ. I would keep hearing and reading "bristol" condition and newer than new!! When even in the picture, there was obvious severe water
stains and damage, rust, etc... Just from seeing the pictures, that doesn't feel like bristol to me.. That's why I would widen your range of search to the U.S., Carib, Europe
.. With the stronger OZ dollar, you should do well..
There is an excellent broker named Clive at the BVI yacht sales. He is extremely honest and has absolute honesty and integrity. He actually works for you and helps you search for a yacht.. Good luck though as I know your pains brother!!
