    Hello there,

    My intention is to purchase a stock building plans for a motor boat approx.50'
    from Bruce Roberts.
    Is anyone there who has some experience (positive or negative) from this company?
    Before investing in important building plans I would appreciate any comments about their services.
    Thanks a lot
    Adriano

    What boats have you built to date?

    A 50' boat is a major undertaking that most people greatly underestimate.

    The logistics of building such a large boat are massive in terms of the space, tools, heavy equipment, labor force, budget, and time required to finish.

    Especially if you don't know exactly what you are doing already, working with a local naval architect and/or experienced builder who will hold your hand through the process can increase your chance of success.
