    Give us Statement of Requirements, and we can recommend the material.
    Regarding those 62m ships, those are mine hunters and thus built in non-magnetic material. Also large series of ships.

    I looked on the internet some homemade fiberglass boats and fired up.
    I'm wondering if it is possible to expand the production of fiberglass boats to MOTOR YACHTS / POWER CRUISERS like
    https://www.marineinsight.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/motor-yacht-1.jpg this (further perspective),
    will they compete with boats with aluminum (steel, aluminum alloys ...) hulls in terms of weight, speed, reliability, durability and price.
    in my country, it is still difficult to produce metal boat hulls. (Sorry for my English google translate)

    In Your country, there was a shipyard in Poti building aluminum high-speed craft. All gone?

    man you are good
    As far as I know, they actually produced good boats (even winged boats),
    as I know, they shrank and sold everything on metal (I'm not sure exactly).
    on the Internet, I did not find anything about their current production.

    I think that Sunseeker's largest fibreglass motor yacht is their 131' - she has an impressive displacement of 190 tonnes..

    Sunseeker 131 Yacht - Seductive, Inspirational and versatile. https://www.sunseeker.com/en-GB/yacht/131-yacht/

    They also build a 42 metre motor yacht, 218 tonnes displacement, but I think that she is aluminium.

    Ocean Club 42 - Sunseeker https://www.sunseeker.com/en-GB/yacht/ocean-club-42/

    And a 50 metre motor yacht, also aluminium, 340 tonnes displacement, and probably a tad under 500 gross tons.

    The largest local yatch builder has a 210' fiberglass yacht. Lots of builders in the 100' + range.

    At a certain point they go with a metal hull and composites for the rest of the structure.
