Do a "GOOGLE" search.. I just saw one not too long ago somewhere in my web travels, and having sailed one back in the day.. Noticed it.. Maybe eBay..

Good Luck.. Also recommend a Norman Cross if you can find one..

If you could forward any of the links to the sites that you mentioned id appreciate it as I'm yet to come across any.
Although the Norm Cross designs are probably the better sailors, I prefer the daggerboards to be located in the amas, the fact that you don't have to bend down under any beams to travel forward and I feel the EH designs have both a better payload and better utilization of the space in his layouts. Not to discount the Norm Cross designs either as he created some beautiful boats that withstood the test of time - different strokes for different folks is all

Do an advanced search.. title and description etc. Will have to weed thru a lot of miss directed sites and old posts, but might be worth it in the end...

Unfortunately I've had little luck with any search attempts. The only TriStars I've found listed are the 27-9, the little 24', a 45' and the massive 60' in Guatemala. There was some older listings for two separate 38' for sale, but of course they're quite dated and sold years ago.
Another member was kind enough to put me in touch with a guy who in 2005 built a beautiful 36' in fiberglass, sadly tho its presently out of my price range.
From other forums I've been on, the best deals to be had are the tris that probably aren't going to be listed on the net.
It's for that reason that I've asked the favor that if any members are aware or become aware of any of these tris for sale in their marina, if they could let me know. I appreciate everyones help

http://www.howlingwolfmedia.com/boat/ is the website that lists the 36 TriStar with pics and contact details. Beautiful craftsmanship and alot of time has gone into her creation. I wish you the best of luck

I've heard nothing but stellar reports of the 27'9 and for $6000 she is a steal, assuming she isn't without to many faults, but sadly she's just too small for me
