NZ a good place to sell my sailboat?

In 2003 I purchased Jipcho, a 1975 Young 42, a cold molded kauri wood monohull sloop built in Auckland, NZ.
I sailed her to Fiji and west from there across two oceans. I am now spending the cyclone season in Guatemala's Rio Dulce, preparing for the final leg of circumnavigation, Panama to NZ.
By the time I arrive in NZ, I will have been 15 years sailing and living aboard, and ready to take a rest ashore somewhere, so I'll be ready to sell my vessel. I wonder if NZ is a good place to sell her. Maybe Australia or another Asian market would be better? I assumed that being a Kiwi design, she might be easier to get a fair price, but then again the market may be saturated, and I've also met many Kiwis who sail production fiberglass boats back to NZ, with the intention of making a profit, so I assume Kiwis may prefer those types of vessels. Additionally, I have no idea about the legal and tax restrictions on a foreigner selling a foreign flagged vessel in NZ.
Anyone have any ideas?
Many thanks in advance for good advice! :-)
