    My question now is.
    Who wants a pleasurable and collaborate on a new powerboat project with me?
    I start with a 50" motor yacht with out flay. These should have the standard of European yacht. Who wants to plan with me the hull or has already finished something?

    Could you elaborate on what you mean by "Collaborate"?.
    Does this mean investing time and / or money in your project, repayable?

    How well are you capitalized? Do have a minimum of $3,000,000 to invest in this project since this looks like an on-spec build? If you do, can you explain why you are looking for assistance on an Internet forum instead of contacting NA's whose work you admire and who have been involved in successful launches of similar vessels.

    What sort of market research have you done regarding your customer base, have you a target price? How large is your market projected to be be over the next 10 years?

    Have you established an arrangement with a shipyard to build this vessel? If so where? I see you are in Indonesia, is that where the yard is located? Will you be marketing locally or worldwide? Are you incorporated, if so where? Do you have product liability insurance, is so how much and where is your carrier located?

    What material will you build with? Steel? Do you know how much plate will cost you delivered to your yard? If fiberglass, do you know the cost per ton of resins or even which resin you will use: epoxy or poly?

    What standard will you build this to: Lloyd's, ABS, Veritas, etc. do you know the differences between them or the implications of those differences?

    Until you can answer these and many other questions this is just intellectual ************ and a waste of time for all concerned.

    Are you talking about throwing ideas around about a boat that size?
