Re: Anything like Borresen BB10

Check out the Canadian built "Abbot" boats, in particular the 33 and 36 in the link below:

Sailboats built by Abbott Boats Inc. by year on Sailboatdata.com

.. not quite as 'sexy', the venerable Contessa 32

These are not daysailers, the Abbots are somewhat atypical cruiser/racers of the time, (narrow beam, frac rigs) and the Contessa is a serious cruising boat with a strong reputation.
