I'd think that you'd want to buy locally, since importing a small boat is going to involve fairly significant transportation costs. One book that might be worth looking at, even though it does concentrate on boats that were available in the US, is The Sailor's Book of Small Cruising Sailboats.

I'd point out that a Montgomery 17 is currently making a circumnavigation IIRC. WWPs, at least the larger ones, are pretty seaworthy.

The Flicka 20, is actually more like 24' LOA and really heavy.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
