Sensible price is not a problem but I am not paying 200,000 for a Mediterranean yacht tender with added bling !!! The Redbay is too enclosed. We want to be connected to the sea in all but the coldest and most miserable circumstances. I really want someone who will build a utilty boat to my specification....
Biffer who used to post on here used to custom build cabin ribs to customer requirements. If I recall correctly he sold the business to someone else on here but cant for the life of me remember who.

Someone out there with a better memory then me?
