    I am looking to build an 80 ft. sailboat similar to the attached photo in Wood/epoxy “perhaps mahogany” could anyone recommend individual designs and designers.
    Many thanks,

    You need, apparently, someone to copy or imitate an existing design, which is simpler and cheaper than creating a new design. I'm right?
    In addition, for what is explained in your other thread, the designer must know how to express himself in Turkish, to communicate with a shipyard in Turkey, and must know, of course, the regulations applicable to ships built in that country. I'm wrong?.

    Here's a 77' 11" (23.75 m) LOA Laurent Giles (John ('Jack') Laurent Giles) built in 1964 for sale, no problem to build an 80' (24.38 m) LOA version, and have the house restyled like the one you've posted above, and you'll have a much better boat than that one. Most Laurent Giles plans are still for sale from the Laurent Giles Archive. What's your budget ? I'll have you an outrageous one build for € 37 million, plus € 3 million commission for myself. The 1964 one for sale in France looks to be in good shape and is asking € 460 K.

    Note: interested parties need to investigate the blisters on the hull's double mahogany outside planking. —

    Just another that came to mind, Daniel Bombigher (RIP), his daughter Zoé owns his work now, plans (click the pics) and adaptations, within reason of course, looks to be still available (not so cheap) through the Naval Architect and Daniel's ex-apprentice plus collaborator Hervé Coutand.

    Below shown the 80' (24.38 m) LOD Pretty Creole, maybe she could have a pretty motorsailer house just below the main boom . . ?

    I have just read your previous threads.
    I am a Turkish yacht designer based in the UK.
    Maybe I can help you with shaping your design and build it.
    Please look at my website from my profile and send me an email if you need any design services.

    Kind Regards
