By 'Most for my money' do you mean biggest Or best?
Assuming best then there's a nice Privilege 36 in Ireland at the moment at 99k http://www.multihulls.co.uk/brokerag...s/bazille.html you pay more for a Privilege but quality is high and resale price good.

Assuming biggest then for 100k/US$200k you are going to be looking at something pretty old if you want something much above 40ft. Here's one that might fit the bill MultiHull World Boat Detaills

As for part exchange... Find a desperate owner and make them an offer

Good luck on your search. For that money you may need to look at something like a Prout Snowgoose and spiff it up as much as your budget allows. I've heard bad reports on the Wildcat too. We sail a new Admiral 38 cat and love it. If you find a used one in your price range you'd still need some cash to update it. I've never heard of anyone trading down from a cat to a monohull so you likely will need to sell your boat first. If you are interested in our experiences sailing a cat across the Atlantic and now cirumnavigating the Caribbean please join us at web.mac.com/famouspotatoes2. Hope you find the right boat!
