PCP will become famous soon enough
Grand Portage Yachts GL40

This is not really a yacht project but a basic idea for a yacht project but the drawings are so nice and so "American" that I will post them.

Obviously the design is not of a "modern" boat in a sense that it is a boat that recovers a lot of traditional American design iconography in a beautiful way on a hull that even if we cannot call modern seems not bad, given the boat typology.

The designer is Rick Sones, the one that worked (works?) with Bob Perry in what regards the illustration of Bob's boats. I don't know if Bob helped on the design but it shows clearly influences of Bob Perry work, and that's not a bad thing, quite the contrary.
