hi, Have you checked out the Tony Grainger Tris...As a Multihull
Broker [ex] I've tried out a few different boats over the years but found the Grainger boats excellent and hard to fault, especially for cruiser.racing and easy to sail short-handed.. I'm a fan of the Spoon Bay 10.6 which would be a good Single
handed boat... The Newicks I still like but probably more from a romantic point of view..They're too small for cruising and live aboard and not as easy to move about on..Farriers are to expensive..Crowthers too last century, etc.. The bonus for picking up a boat here in NZ or in Australia
is Hong Kong
is pretty local and deck
cargo is reasonably priced or if it was me I'd sail it up..
If you want another look at the Grainger boats check out his website, he's building in Thailand
now and I think there is a boat there thats for sail, but can't remember what size it is/was..
