Looking good! In some ways it's quite reminiscent of our own similar size/vintage boat.

Looks in great shape. Enjoy!

Hey Mate. Congrats.
We went cruising in company with 'Blue Print', a UFO 34.
Blue print has a shortened cockpit, bigger cabin mod.
Great, fast tough yacht. I know there are a few in WA, but if you have any questions regarding the ufo's, pm me and I can get you 'Blue Print's phone number.
