PCP will become famous soon enough
Hei Smack, another option, an intelligent one, I would say is the new Salona 60. I bet this one is going to quick ass at the regatta circuit it is fully customizable and will cost less than the Italian or the Nordic ones.

I find it beautifully:

This is a boat that will sail mainly between 10 and 12K and like all Salonas it will need little wind to sail at those speeds. Downwind with strong winds it will go much faster.

The first one is already sold and they plan to launch it next April. They say the boat has been sold to a sail celebrity but don't say to whom. A Sailor's boat sold to a good sailor probably to Nexus owner, Dean Barker (Emirates Team NZ America’s Cup skipper).

The boat was designed by Jason Ker one of my favorite designers. The Ker are among the fastest boats on the race circuit.
