    Welcome to the Forum Greg.

    Can you tell us a bit more about this 32' boat that you want to have built please, and your reasons for wanting to build it in stainless steel, rather than (say) aluminium (or steel, or fibreglass, or wood epoxy.....)

    It is possible, but also a really bad idea.

    It could be for Dubai.
    Polished SS would look pretty good with a couple of 400's hanging off the back...

    Crevice corrosion is a problem with stainless steel below the waterline. It is possible to passivate it to reduce the problem. Monel would be a better alloy. However, the question is why use stainless?

    $$$,$$$ to burn, wheels to reinvent, buzzwords to use...so many reasons for stainless.

    Sure, Abeking & Rasmussen and L├╝rssen, both have extensive experience using Nitronic 50 as a hull material. There are others that can do it, but these two are also active yacht builders for private clients.
