Was "new European design" a decision taking factor for him those days?
I believe the hull
was built by Vcats in Poland
then shipped over to croatia for fitout. The Vcats website hasnt been updated since 2017.
I think the owner is an American with Vietnamese background. Could have been a topic for his YouTube channel.
The French definitely has the design lead in this industry but quality constructions seems to be a commonality between a lot of the asian yards, im thinking hylas
, outbound, passport, HH, Seawind.
Most of it comes down to furniture and finish though. The french yards can do a nice resin infused hull
but the fit and finish requires too much expensive man hours.
