Steel Hull with CB?

I have been looking for a boat for some time now. Flipping and flopping between glass or steel. Now I am back thinking about steel. I know of boats, glass boats with CB's but I never hear or see steel boats advertised with a CB. Are there any?

I am aware there are some higher priced Alum boats with a CB but these are well out of my price range.

Any advise?

CB = Centerboard, I'd bet.

Van de Stadt has designs that include 3 options of keel, deep, shallow and center board: VAN DE STADT 37 "FORNA" (NO. 459)

I know people that have CB boats that hate it; it creates maintenance issues and constant noise. Price wise I'm not sure they'll be less expensive than an Alumat (they look great!) or similar.

Also, a couple of designs from Koopman and Zaal.

I have seen a Bruce Roberts with CB too.
