I don't see the point for amateur construction of boat that duplicates mainstream production models. Such boat can be bought on secondary market for the fraction of price one would spend building boat on his own (including working time and buying parts).
Amateurs build boats for one or few of reasons:
1. Cost; this means that building boat should be muck cheaper than buying similar size craft; say Wharram catamarans. Simple designs!
2. Passion to build boats by their own hands. They want such boats be visible and they want take pride of their work' not likely they want the boat look like a production one. Beautiful designs!
3. Specific/unique features and customization, not available on existing production boats. Unique/special designs!
What features are behind this design?...
I agree with you it is fairly inexpensive to find the boat on the secondary market, but still there are people who want to build a boat with their hands.
The boat project I created at the request of my friend who wanted to build a boat with his sons in a small room.
He spent a lot of time searching for a suitable project but all he found was designed many years ago. He wanted a modern boat with a simple design which can be built using cut on the CNC parts.
The basic idea is that the boat is built like a puzzle, and to build the necessary minimum set of hand tools.
