That's a beautiful and interesting boat, and certain aspects definitely appeal to me. What's the sail area and is it sufficient to drive a 28,000 lb. boat on a 37 foot waterline? That Isuzu 27 hp seems underpowered by half to me, though, and all the nice systems on board (like the washer) aren't likely to be covered by the maximum 55 amp alternator the Isuzu is likely to carry.

But really, that's a quibble. 44 foot of Robert Perry-endorsed cutter for $135K is practically a steal. I would want a sail test in 40 knots, though, to see if there's balance issues at that weight.
