Re: Production Boats and the Limits

I wouldn't call Hinckley a production boat, nor Morris nor Cape George.

Tayana and Cheoy Lee certainly are production boats.

Brewer is a designer, not a builder.

It's not whether it is a production boat or not, but where the design and build quality are focused. And many boats not ever intended for offshore use can be modified to make it work.

I think what is most interesting is many boats thought of as good offshore boats were never designed or built for this. Ones that come to mind are the Pearson Triton, Alberg 30 and Alberg 35 - all designed and intended for coastal use only.
