I've been talking with a builder in Dalian China who would like to build aluminum PL's to a budget.......another possibility but still requiring effort to develop a community of possible owner's......
We know a shipyard in Haļ Phong who built alloy boats since 1997 from the small 9 m with 150 hp cummins (50 similar model) to the 34 m coast guard with twin big MTU .
I living near this shipyard during 3 year and we visit this yards few time since we left Vietnam . They do a good job, at reasonable price .
I got a quotation 15 months ago for a 20,80 m hard chine hull heavily built around 12 t off alloy .
You could contact me if you want more details
