Just as an aside...$500k for a 40 foot boat is par for the course for a lot of the bluewater boats I looked into (Pacific Seacraft, Norstar 40, Valiant 42 when it was still offered).

Prices are way up for new long distance cruising boats. Probably 1/2 that for a new Beneteau/Hunter/Catalina in the 40 foot range. Building using the old way is expensive it seems. This shows on the secondary market where there just isn't much supply for those designs from the late 1990s and beyond. I suspect prices will rise and there may even be appreciation for people that bought those bluewater boats.

I have no idea how the Blue Jacket is built...but Island Packets tended to be heavy, so assuming a lot of fiberglass goes into 'em.
