Perry Polaris 43

New to forum. Let me know if I offend. Have been actively in the market for a Tayana 37 pilothouse for my wife and I to cruise. Run across a sales ad for a Perry Polaris 43 for sale in the Puget Sound. Does anyone out there have any information on this type of boat or this boat in particular? The name implies a Robert Perry design but I also read that she may be a Hans Christian copy. If sound, she looks perfect for us.

Re: Perry Polaris 43??

Don't let Bob hear about this. They were a pirated design and he got no royalties IIRC.

Re: Perry Polaris 43 ?

Do you know who pirated/built them? How many are there? Source to find out more?

Re: Perry Polaris 43 ?

No, no and no. They seem a decent boat though Bob didn't much care for them. I looked at a new one way back when but have no more personal knowledge about them then you do.

Re: Perry Polaris 43

I own a Polaris 43 and can answer any questions you may have. I have met and talked with Bob and he is over the whole not liking the Polaris 43 thing. Opinions mellow with age.

Feel free to PM with any questions.
