    frame-less is an option i may consider later on, maybe in a second project, but for now i'm sticking to a framed yacht. hull design for me at the moment is proving very difficult, i think its something i will gather over time. i am how ever going to design the interior fit out, electrical and propulsion fit out as well. and possibly even the rig
    :D

    how about a traditional 40' sloop eg, top sail, stay sail, gaff rigged main with topsail etc saw some pretty pictures :p

    (not to mention that i am a tad of traditionalist when it comes to design and architecture)

    Plans are free in his book. Easy to build in steel if you'd prefer.

    Displaced volume : 215.85 [ft3]
    Displacement : 6.166 [tons]
    Total length of submerged body : 32.556 [ft]
    Total beam of submerged body : 9.894 [ft]
    Length on waterline : 32.556 [ft]
    Beam on waterline : 9.894 [ft]

    Waterplane center of flotation : 18.550 [ft]
    Entrance angle : 22.405 [degr.]
