Aluminium for high latitude sailing?

Im thinking of getting a metal boat, About 36' im thinking of an Ovni (Aluminium lifting keel) I fancy a metal boat because of how strong they are, I would like to be able to go to high latitudes at somepoint so I need a strong hull, im abit put off by steel because of all the painting needed, Aluminium can be left raw and doesnt need alot ot maintenance, But i know nothing about what to look out for, there doesnt seem alot of second hand ones around is that a good sign?? Has anyone got an aluminium boat out there? what do i look for? anyone know of a good designer out there (i could be perswaded into having the basic boat built from scratch) all info is much aphreciated
