Question Stability information

How does someone go about finding stability information on various boats, some of which the manufacturer is out of business, while researching for a future purchase? I'm not looking for the vague capsize ratio. I would like to find specific values such as AVS. Is there any resource where this type of information is compiled?

I'm trying to narrow down my short list of preferred boats based on specific boat data rather than the glittering "she will take you around the world" statements that sellers and manufacturer's love to throw around.
