If you've got 10-12 hours to spare be sure to peruse PCP's "Interesting Sailboats" thread on this board. He covers most all the new offerings in Europe, incl many that are not your 'mainstream' brands and he's very concerned and interested in construction issues AND high performance.
It's a real drool-fest and is sure to give you some good ideas.
