    I have been asked to build a 22' to 28' long by 6' to 8' beam Asian inspired canal/river launch for use as a dinner cruise boat for 6-8 persons. The practial aspects of the design I can handle but need help with basic look and feel. Plan is for an open boat with a cupola or shelter over the dinning table area. Anybody have a favorite website or book I can look at for inspiration? Thanks much.

    More "Asian lines" & ideas.
    Is this a theme boat? It doesn't sound big enough for a real enterprise.
    Google "Hong Kong Harber", use the image feature.
