I don't know how hard it would be to find one but the advise may be valid if he happens to luck into one. From my own experience, I wanted a Farr 38 and there were only 3 Farr 38's on the US Atlantic Coast. I was able to track down and negotiate a deal on one, and when that one failed survey, made a deal on another almost immediately thereafter. Given that the Peason's were built on the east coast and the OP is on the east coast, he should have better odds than I had tracking down a rare South African built boat in the US.

That said, moving the traveller out of the cockpit is not a good thing on a 30 footer, and I understand that the Yanmar horsepower bump up came from a different way of measuring HP rather than an engine redesign.
