    I'd just like to take this time to say hello and welcome myself to this forum.

    I'm currently a student in the UK and over the past year have been solely designing in my spare time a 120ft motor yacht - A big task I know! Unfortunately with me, I tend to run before I can walk!

    I've slowly been piecing things together concerning layouts, specs etc but am starting to get a little bit out of my depth :confused:

    For example, the actual cost of producing something like this!? I read earlier on the forum that as a very rough guide its about £25k per metric tonne... :confused:

    I'll post up some designs soon so everyone can get a feel for what I've designed, and pick holes in it :D

    Which multi-millionaire is funding this?
