This schooner has 10 entries on YW all under different brokers.. So maybe they are a real motivated seller. It's listed lower with a US broker: http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listi...oat_id=1700142

Lack of the Perry name hasn't quelled my interest, though looking at Beeljsnijder sail portfolio he has credits for the interior design but not the naval archecture of nearly all the vessels in his porfolio. Maybe the 55 was an evolutionary hull design on the 52, and it was mostly cosmetic from the waterline up? Kind of like the new 55/58 CC/DS/PH versions..

The centerboard version gets you to a 9'10" draft, I'd expect that would help you point quite nicely but I wish I could find some real technical data on this. That and really any other performance data. I've found one base PHRF rating for a T-55 at 54 (NE PHRF)
