European sailboats ( especially Contest, Sigma, Etap... )

I am still looking for my next partner... I am attracted by a Bristol 35.5 and a Contest 36. ( way more $ !)
I am a bit leary about the fluidity - or the easyness ) to resell a boat which is not very known in the USA. Contest is made in the Netherlands and its rep is in Vancouver. Etap was made in Belgium and is r3epresented in the North East.
So basically, Contest is not very well known. Does this present a handicap when I'll try to resell her in say 12 years? Then a Bristol would be more appropriate.
Thank you!
Note: I am still looking at a Ericson 38 and a First 37 and a CC Landfall...
Why did I sell my Carter ?
