    Before the next sailing season I'd like to buy a newer, lighter hull. I have a pre/72 with too many years of water inside, even w/drying attempts, the boat is easily 150+ lbs. I also want the back cuddy. Has there been a significant hull redesign, interior or exterior and if so what year. I'm tying to determine what years to be aiming for, (other than brand new). Thank you.

    After refreshing my memory and reviewing the above timeline, I would focus on Vanguard boats. But do your 'due diligence' on any boat that you want to consider.
