Re: Help choosing the project and the designer/naval architect.
Yes it makes sense to use a good and experienced aluminum shipyard, or at least a crew that works for them but I guess they will be happy to build any good design from a any other NA. I saw what they have done and It seems well done but not really any design I really like.
Why do you say that the building in Brazil would be very expensive? I thought that it should be a lot less expensive than in Europe.
Paulo, I believe you could build the hull cheaper in Brazil than Europe, but everything else like winches, hatches, pumps, ports, masts etc. would cost much more here because of the high taxes and small market. Argentina would be a good choice for building the boat as they have prices for parts almost on a par with the US.
