A few things:

According to Steve Dashew it is a myth that costs are less for blue water intended and well maintained sailboats vs his design of a power boat. Check out his website for the details.

There are several late model diesel ducks for sale, they are not cheap. Given their antiquated (I didn't say bad) design and high build cost I'd guess a well cared for late model Nordhavn would be a better investment and a lot more fun.

FF, the underloaded diesel problem you so often raise is a figment of your DD 2 stroke imagination. Substitute "underused and poorly maintained" for "underloaded" and I agree with you 100%. And please take your theories to Tony Athens, not me, on this issue.
