While I'm in the grumpy mode: on closer inspection, the list seems to be more a list of second-hand boats, rather than current efficient designs? The high count of USA-builds on the list is only apparent; judging by your "*" a full 43 of the US builds are out of business. I too have had a nostalgic hankering for old beautiful boats, especially the long-keeled variety, but they are after all beginning to get a little long in the tooth. Buying second-hand, you should count any electronics older that 5 years as obsolete and due for complete replacement. Already there you have an expense.
