In our eternal search for the Holy Grail of a perfect boat, we have begun to lust after the Shuttleworth catamaran
We just might commission one if we thought we could find the right boat builder
close enough to us so we could monitor
We have finally become patient enough to wait for one to be built, since the perfect one we haven't found yet already built (yes even with compromises). If we have to make massive renovations and repairs
to an older boat, we might as well build a new one ourselves and get the most modern hull
design currently available. Took us forever to figure this out.
Does anyone know of a boat builder
in North America that would build a fiberglass
and foam core Shuttleworth catamaran
design and at a reasonable price
with professional quality?
Does anyone who has already commissioned a boat have any tips for this adventure?
No matter what the builder says, how long does it actually take to build the boat - say 37 to 44 feet in length - and finish the interiors and mount the rigging
Any advice on finishing out the interiors and mounting rigging
perhaps with a different builder than the hulls and bridge deck
And the final question!! Does anyone have any advice for using a boat builder in a country on the other side of the world - quality control verification, taxes
, real costs when all is said and done, etc.
Thanks very much for your advice.
Have a wonderful holiday season folks.
