Kings Legend 41'

Hi all. I have been reading this (and other) very informative forum for some time now in my search for the "right" sailboat. I am looking for a boat to be used to coastal sail along the east coast of Australia for the next few years and the South Pacific islands once we are ready. On board will mainly me myself, my wife and our youngest daughter (currently 18 months.)
I came across this boat on the weekend and quite liked it even though it isnt exactly what I was looking for.Kings Legend Pilothouse 41' for Sale @ Australiawide Boat Sales. There seems to be very little information available on this boat. Does anyone here know of the boat / design. I was really looking for more of a production boat with a swim platform and no teak decks but it do like the looks and "feel" of this boat (one owner). Owe

Here is another one that is for sale and it tells you who the designer is. I have seen these and they are a handsome boat. I believe they are built in Taiwan, so you would need to do your homework on it.

The listings identify both desingers.

I have looked at other sites and it says Bob Perry. Perhaps the website I sent you earlier is not correct...weird!

That IS NOT my design. It was designed by Eva and built at one of the worst yards I ever visited in Tainwan.

Just back from vacation.

Thanks Bob. And thank you for replyong to my email as well. I have only managed to find this and one other Kings Legend 41 (internet) and both seem to have done some substantial miles. When you say the yard was one of the worst you visited, I assume you recommend steering clear of this boat?

Welcome back. What was the poison of choice, Dos Equis or Negra Modelo?

Actually is was Corona at the house and Sol down at the next beach where my son enjoyed the surfing better. Of course there were liberal amounts of Tradicional to wash the beer down. Here is a pic of my son Spike using the local materials for his boatbuilding project.
