Looking for suggestions.
Limiting yourself to 20 year old or less yachts eliminates a significant number of high quality yachts, particularly so considering that many yachts built in the '80's, were, and continue to be, of much higher quality than what has been built since, e.g. http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listi..._id=64991&url=.

The deck has a 2 inch balsa core. According to an owner, the hull is 1.5 inches thick at the waterline and goes to 3 inches below the waterline illustrating the heavy construction.
Is that really believable????

Ah, yep. That was/is the thickness of the layup in the keel stub where the cast iron/lead keel is bolted on. Generally however, the hull thickness at the turn of the bilge is somewhat less but the boats are very heavily built and sail like a witch (and are quite handsome to boot!). Frers never designed a slow boat.

FWIW...
