Cole, the price
seems reasonable as you would have to build it yourself - and their time estimates range from a low of 4500 hours (presumably for an experienced/professional builder) to 6000 hours. Assuming that you are not an experienced boat builder
and that the 6000 hour figure is realistic, then you would need 150 forty hour weeks to complete her (essentially 3 years with only 2 weeks off IN TOTAL). You would also need to have (or rent) shop space suitable for a trimaran
and have (or buy) all tools/equipment needed for the project
On the other hand, one could contract the construction to a quality professional builder
. I suspect that you would be hard pressed to find one domestically that would be prepared to give you shop labour (and space) for under $50.00/hour (in many places it would be much more). Hence, assuming the lower estimate is fair for a professional making a one-off boat, then $50.00 x 4500 hours = $225,000.00 over the listed cost of materials/plans. Bearing in mind that price
of materials are guaranteed to increase over the duration of the project
, I suspect that it would be impossible to have a sailaway version built professionally, even with just the most basic inventory of sails/electronics etc., for under $325,000.00 - $350,000.00. Equipped for cruising, it would cost even more.
Would it suit your purposes? Probably. But if I am not mistaken, you are/were looking for a completed vessel rather than plans, however detailed.
