    I need a handle this machine http://www.avanttecno.com/web/engtuotteet/600consept.htm
    Weight of machine with options is around 1300-1500 kg.

    I need a open front, and a crane. I don´t need speed.

    I "probably" want a diesel inboard maybe "waterjet". One engine is to prefer.

    I want to have place inside for a small galley, shower, bed for 2,

    I want the cabin at the stern.

    New or used

    Length from 8-12 m?

    Catamaran hull?

    Anyone know what to look for?

    I am going to post mainly because I am interested in where this is going.

    I believe you will need at least a 12m for the weight and size of this little beast, and your accomodation requirements. Now I am going to have to do some research.

    How long will your journey(s) be? Is it for local work or distance travel?

    What type of draft are you looking for?

    Inshore....In the archipelago of stockholm.

    I have sent a mail to http://www.metalcraftmarine.com about weight carrying and prices.

    Take a look at the bullnose. I want the smallest possible boat $$

    I know you can´t have a galley, beds in this boat. But you can probably sleep on the floor alone.

    Waterjet sounds nice for this kind of boat?!

    Look up Bill Munson's boats. His are typical of a North American variant that is perfectly suited for this sort of thing. I believe he sold out but google him up and you will be on the the path to exactly what you are specifying.

    Metalrafts barge style boat is exactly what you need. I am sure they will have something ideally suited to your needs.

    Best Of Luck.

    I saw one like the Munson in the area north of Gothenburg a couple of years ago with a small tractor on it, so probably someone in Sweden or Finland builds them. Sorry that I can't be more helpful

    Those are nice little machines you have there. If you want to market them in the USA maybe we can do something with my boat?

    Stanley Aluminum Boats and MetalCraft Marine are two different shops in Southern Ontario. MetalCraft is five minutes from my place; Stanley is in Parry Sound on some of my favourite cruising grounds.

    Both have a reputation for building very solid, very reliable, innovative working craft in heavy welded aluminum. Both will customize just about everything to your specific needs. I have seen Stanley's craft at shows and their hulls are very fair, with beautifully smooth, perfectly sized weld beads.

    I do not know how much it would cost to ship such a craft from Canada to Sweden, but the exchange rates right now are very favourable for European buyers perusing Canadian yards- your euro gets you a buck-fifty to a buck-sixty Canadian, so lop a third off the quoted price before you add the shipping costs.
