What would you get?? newer boat

I know this is a never ending discussion. I thought i would throw this out there anyway.
If you are given a set of rules to buy a newer sailboat; what would you get? Putting aside all the discussions about old and new. Here's the rules:

1990 or newer, this cuts out all the older designs (for the most part)
$200k or less, cuts out the oysters, swans, southerly's, hinkleys.....
has to be between 40 and 45 feet
must be able to cross a ocean theoretically
post a link or picture (yacht world, sailboat listing....)

I think it would be interesting to see what people would come up with.

Here's my pick; i'd love a southerly, but take this for now.

1993 Beneteau 45 F5 Pinnifrania , Bruce Farr design $119k
(unable to post link to yacht world, not enough posts yet)
