You might contact Robert H Perry Yachts Designers Inc. Home Page . Note, however, that the alleged budget for a 46' boat seems rather disproportionate, no?

might need to go higher, given the cost of monel is 12-15 times higher than fiberglass...I would think you are in the $300-400K for material to do just the hull and superstructure and decking...

Looking forward to what happens next. Best of luck.

The choice of vessel and building material makes me think this would be a great DYI project.Cheaper too.

There is nothing 46' on this earth that's worth over $1.5 million!!!!
Not to float in the Gulf of Mexico? !!!

The Puritans have tared and featherd another free thinker.
And ya'll just can't figure out why the industry all moved to China and New Zealand.

All offers and interest here are secured; I kid you all not!

I will build Her just the same. She will be named in memory of my mother :

"Margaret Ann"
Galveston

Good day, Gentlemen.

If you are serious, hire him, listen to him and then do what he advises you - he knows more about sailboats than the rest of us combined. Considering the $$$ you are talking, his fee will be a pittance in the grand scheme and you will be sure to have a good boat with high resale value.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Thanks guys.
He did contact me and after an exchange of less than 100 words he came to the conclusion that our temperaments would not work together.

I just finished the book TEMPERAMENT by Stuart Isacoff so I know a thing or two about the various temeperaments and I think I could play in any of them.

Ah... Well. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I refuse to do business with someone I don't seem to hit it off with at the outset. (Given the foregoing, my wife's suggested I'd better retire!)

A guy that comes to a public forum like sailnet looking for a NA with an odd project for a $1 000 000 boat deserves little credit. That old design made with expensive materials would worth only a fraction of the price it costed to build after being finished.
