Thinking about a blue-water analog

I’m thinking about building a ocean going yacht , and have been very interested in Colin Archers “Stavanger” a rescue boat that saw service in Norway, here is a nice video of her in action http://www.woodenboat.com/wbmag/stavanger.php

I also like Bob’s Elanor is also part of the analog.

33 – 43 feet and medium displacement 5-8 thousand pounds, internal ballast, comfortable safe and relatively fast for long distance ocean capable  sailing.
