    Hi all, and Merry Christmas and a happy new year.

    I am interested in finding lines plans, preferrably electronic, for a 100 foot freighter/trawler style design.

    I have done numerous sesrches for many months looking so far but have come up with nothing as yet.

    My plan is to use such a set as the basis of the design for the superstructure and GA plans, then get a NA to do the final drawings and calculations before construction.

    I have already created the design in Photoshop, just need now to be able to get it into a CAD file somehow to keep playing with it. I expect to be starting construction in about 18 to 24 months.

    Landie, Join the frey, show what you have and let the "wolves" have a feeding frenzy, then as things settle down, lines may appear to illustrate a point of argument.

    Endure the pain for a good end result. It is a case of any publicity is good publicity if it attracts useful info out of the storm. Harvest the rain not the lightning & good luck, it may take longer than you think.

    Pics of design so far, and yes I know it is a stretched Nordhavn, but the end boat will be very different to this basic concept

    mmmmmm, thanks Pericles, there are a few good ideas there, also one of the worst looking boats I have ever seen (you know the one), I guess beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Thanks mate.

    I can probably help, I've got a 102' composite (solid glass) displacement motor yacht, but we'll have to sort out protection so another NA doesn't end up with my intellectual property. Send me an email or give me a call.

    Thanks fellas, it has grown to 120 feet now, the owner has decided he needs a bit more room.

    I have a yard in China where i will be building her, they have their own "designers". but they are all crappy patrol boat shapes with copies of Taiwanese cruisers on top, i am looking for a nice coastal freighter lines plan to build on, I can easily just do it from a std freighter hull, but was looking for a more modern underwater shape, but still singlke engined full displacement. Onlt want to do 12 knots. Using about 500-750hp, mid speed engine.

    I would think something like the below could be pushed and pulled into the correct shape.

    Landlubber,

    Now you're asking me to do work....:D

    Send me an email address and state file requirements, 2D or 3D, and AutoCAD version.
