I saw a Kirie Elite for sale in Edmonds Washington state going for a silly price ($1.2K).
I have something of a sweet spot for this particular design as I saw it at a Paris boat show and it just felt like it would be a great boat. It was quite roomy for its size, had a huge aft double, and it was no slouch in terms of speed.
It was everything I liked in the Harlé Tonic design but expanded out to a 30-foot envelope. Sadly, it was also more expensive than I could afford at the time.
Now at a reasonable price with a diesel engine that works “OK” it just might be one of the better VolksCruiser deals going.
