Sorry Bob, I went to have dinner with friends.

It is amazing how a keel can change the looks of a boat. That draft is what? 2.30/2.40m?

I really like the look of the boat and yes if I had the money for that kind of boat and the costs associated with I am sure you could design me, taking as base that design a boat I could live with

It makes no sense to have a custom boat if the boat is like the others so imagining that I went through with it the first thing I would ask regarding your boat was a top building with epoxy vacuum infused technology with carbon reinforcements. That and an even deeper keel (lifting keel) and a modern interior would allow a much lighter boat with less wet surface and less rocker. A top builder could make a boat like that with about, let's say 5000/6000kg for the hull and something like 3000/3500kg of ballast.

That and a much more elongated torpedo on the keel would be a good start.

That boat with a big stiffness a great grip on the water about 8000kg of displacement and the possibility to reduce draft to 1.80m could really convince me to have a classical looking boat. Yes I know the keel would create problems in the interior but with 46ft I am sure that I could handle that in what regards design. Well if not with 46, with 48ft, but who cares if I would have money for that I would not be much concerned about the extra cost. Dreams don't have price

Thanks for the drawing.

Regards

Paulo
