Sigma 36 - need help from Barcelona

I'm new to this forum.
I'm based in Barcelona (Spain) and have a Furia 32J. We usually sail to the Balearic Islands and Corsica&Sardinia 3 weeks in the Summer.
This thread is to ask for help.
I'm helping a Dutch friend that wants to sell her Sigma 36 (wheel version) moored in l'Ampolla. We are stuck on paperwork. The boat have never flied the Spanish flag and in order to do it, the Spanish authorities require the official plans of the boat, otherwise they need a construction study by a naval engineer and that is quite expensive.
I've found in the Internet that Marine Projects of Plymouth is now a dormant company that seems to belong to Princess Yachts.
Does anyone have the Sigma 36 official plans?
Thank you in advance.

Sorry. I can't help you. I'm down in Murcia and hoping to get to Sardinia this year, virus allowing.
I'm curious, why does your friend want to change flag?

Is not my friend who wants to change flag but the buyers. Dutch flag now is only allowed if you're a Dutch resident.
I'm also willing to go to South Sardinia this Summer but most likely we'll just go to Cabrera

Ah. I didn't know that. The flag is getting a little more complicated every year. I see a number of people here are changing to the Belgian flag. It seems its easier.

Belgian flag is like Dutch, you must be resident now. I have Belgian flag but will change back to Spanish before the end of the year.
Polish flag is the alternative but experts say it will be like Belgian and Ducth flags in a couple of years or less... You will be able to fly a Polish flag but will have to carry all the Spanish mandatory items (the hardest in the EU!) if you're Spanish resident, so no advantage of having a Polish flag.

Ah. That's a new one. I did hear that Polish was an option. As you say it may be just as well to replace to Spanish. We shadow the Spanish requirements so it wouldn't be such a big problem to change. Just the expense.
