I would also be leery of boats built just before a company went into bankruptcy (most did unfortunately). There is just too much chance of corners being cut as a company attempted to get a boat out the door to maintain cash flow. You would have to check the history of individual companies but this was a common problem in the late 80s and into the 90s.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
