    I am looking for wooden cold molded boat builders who are cabable of building a large superyacht wood cold or hot molded PVC core with carbon fiber fabric composite hull. I am aware of Hodgdon Yachts. I am looking for a yard or builder that can exceed there quality. The problem is many wooden boat builders build boats under 100'.

    The boat that will be built will be a low volume boat with a length to beam ratio will be 9 to 1 or 10 to 1 with a maximum height off water line not to exceed 7.5 meters to top of pilot house and beam width not exceed 7.5 meters.

    Any reference or leads for wooden boat builders who are undiscovered master boat builders will be appreciated. Looking for top quality that would put to shame the quality of Lurssen, Hodgdon and Abeking.

    Thank you

    Well, this is a diferent troll,

    Winap; 246' by 24.5' huh? Cool.

    Roughly 250 tons say, and double the average budget from 20 to 40 mill.

    No problem, there are lot's of builders out there for a project like that. NOT!!

    Best of luck.

    Tad, (look I have a name).

    The Chinese bless their hearts have brought their quality up over the years,and their price cant be beat.You would be suprised to learn how many builders contract part or whole jobs from a yard in China.For a boat like this you need bottom paint on your wallet.

    I would require 100% down payment.

    Once you supply that, I will get a crew together.
