The low maintenance boat...a beautiful dream . I found this article on metal boats that is a little interesting:

Good Old Boat - Is there a metal yacht in your future? article

Doing a quick search on Al hulls on yachtworld seems to indicate that most of them are overseas, but there are a great number of them out there. Just have to be willing to sail them home.... The prices seem like a bit of a premium, so I guess that's a sign that they hold their value well, perhaps?

Of course, it's only wood hulls for me
