Boat: 48' 1963 S&S yawl

For me I'd order a 60+ ' yawl. Full keel, moderate cut away for the forefoot.
Stem, keel and horn timber -Borneo ironwood
Planking below waterline- either Borneo ironwood or Angelique
Planking above water line- Myanmar teak
Frames- steam bent Balata
Floors and fastenings-Monel

I'd go with double diagonal planking with a fore an aft top layer (epoxy and screws between planks- through fastenings to the frames)

glass on ply deck
teak on ply on teak coachhouse and roof

As a fan of long and skinny I'd guess a beam of no more than 14 feet or so at that length..

A boat that has a soft ride, sails quickly, goes upwind easily, has a balanced helm and is pretty to look at.
