Have you tried searching on Yachtworld or boats.com??? Part of the problem is that you're looking for a fairly rare beastie stateside, since the Heavenly Twins was UK built and not too many came over to the US.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Yep, tried everywhere. There are lots for sale in Europe, but extremely rare in the US. Hoping somebody might know of one stateside that may not be on the market yet or owners who are considering selling etc.
Thanks

HT or US equivalent??

We really like the HTs, but can't seem to find any available stateside. We love the fact that it is: 1. small 2. ocean going and very sea worthy 3. family friendly 4. small but very liveable. We really like the smallnes factor, very un-American of us we know. Any one have any suggestion for a similar boat we can find stateside?
thanks!

Just saw one on craigslist in Lake Worth, South Florida. 8K. I can't post a link yet, but a google of "craigslist heavenly twins" pulls it up. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the lead

Thanks for the lead! We already found the link and are looking into it. Our fear is that it is the same one with the rotting hulls, etc. etc. that came up for sale a few years ago .... the 8k price tag makes us a little suspicious.
keep fingers crossed it's just a crazy fluke

thanks again for the speedy lead.

If you get a chance, would you mind sharing any thoughts about it? I am just starting to learn about HT's, so any info on what is actually available stateside would be most appreciated.
