    Hi,
    I transferred to Singapore and I fancy a custom made multihull built in the region (for cost savings reason) and I am considering plywood (for easy of construction and cost, again).
    Do you know of any boatyard that would have experience in multihull boatbuilding, in plywood for multihulls up to 50ft? In Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines?

    Cheers!

    Work with your designer to select a yard based on their previous successful experiences.

    There are several in the Philippines that have been building for a number of years. I can't think of the specific names right at the moment, but I'm sure a good search on this form (search button) will turn them up.

    Did you ever proceed with your thoughts on that vessel construction?

    I forgot to link you to this one that was built in Thailand.

    ...and they have since built another one.

    Be a bit careful in the Philippines. There is a total ban on cutting of indigenous timber (framing) Plenty is still coming out but there is a sort of mob mentality involved. You could get burnt. In reality someone may come visiting selling a little protection.
