Build boat in Asian Shipyard

I am seriously considering floating to a smaller yacht by building a locally designed custom TS monohull with outriggers, like the old Haines Hunter Tramp built in Australia last century but hull twice the size bit like a MacGregor with no ballast with lots of living room but weighing about 750 Kg. Now I am not a boat builder and initial estimates are not attractive so wondered if anyone has overseen a build in Asia, maybe Thailand or Vietnam. Searches to date have turned up companies who enquires suggest no longer operate.🤔

So an F24 to F31
Or Grainger 075 to Spoonbay
Or even a Ray Kendrick Scarab

Re: Build boat in Asian Shipyard

Yes that is the concept except they and the Farrier (I raced Hamilton Is) are all racing machines with tight for space no standing height cabins and not simple to fold. While I enjoy the speed, at the expense of comfort, I am happy with a handicap win last over the line against Wetta and Blazers in my Farr 6 which is not light enough for comfortable caravaning behind smaller SUVs. The closest to ideal I've seen is a Trailer Tramp with good sized tent over cockpit �� Thanks for your thoughts, and maybe more.��

Re: Build boat in Asian Shipyard

Our experience building a cat in Thailand has been very poor. Poor experience, knowledge, productivity and availability of good materials and equipment. You probably would end up importing a significant proportion of your key materials and equipment, and then being subject to high import duties, and expect "surprises" during the import process.
Very debatable whether it is actually any cheaper in the end.
Sorry if that is not what you wanted to hear, but do your homework and due diligence carefully, would be my advice.
