It starts out looking like this with a longer cabin. Have hundreds of hours already invested day dreaming every system and space in this boat. Wonder if Sean can put a fantail on her?

OC Diver - have you considered this trailerable trawler?
You really do need another boat!

A design for a boat that has never been built, they haven't built a single boat. Nothing but renderings. Would you really encourage someone to buy that?

Ted, that's your dive boat isn't it? My Yankee boat, Possum, was originally designed as a dive boat as well. Who built yours?

Actually no customer should go first. They should build a boat and test it and prove it and be able to actually show the customer a boat and take them on it. I'm sorry, but I don't consider you a boat builder if you've never built a boat.

Yes, that's my charter boat, a Bruno & Stillman 35.

While an interesting design, going outside to go between interior cabin spaces makes no sense to me.

I'm a fan of Cheoy Lee. Like any boats, age and condition are important factors. However, they're an industry pioneer and build large numbers of commercial and recreational vessels.

So Parks-on the "Half" boat, which half do you have? The bow or the stern? Or, longitudinally, portside or starboard?

They were one of the first to build fiberglass boats and the foam sandwich technology simply refers to coring with foam as opposed to balsa and other woods. They've built over 5000 vessels of all types. As to details on their construction methods on different boats, best place to get that is from them.

They've already sold 4 hulls.

Looks like pretty professional work so far.

I like the look of that Seapiper 35. A NW bowpicker look. Website, design and
specifications list look well though out. They're still building tooling so a long way from actually having a boat. The center cockpit sure looks interesting and handy. Might be an interesting idea for designers to pursue. Though between it and the stern cockpit they're giving up a lot of boat length to cockpits.
Wishing the builder the beast of luck.

They may or may not have sold 1 or 4. They've built none to completion and they've delivered none. They are still tooling and haven't finished Hull #1. Perhaps it will be great but as of today it's impossible to know how it will be.

I like to see folks come up with new ideas, but this design has always had problems for me. Having to go outside to get to the cabin is just one of them. That is a complete non-starter for my region. The second big issue is that the forward visibility looks to be extremely poor from the helm station.

Where's the fantail swim platform?

Its been said about Bruno and Stilman boats "They have been everywhere and done everything." Was mostly a NEW ENGLAND hero of the mid to late 70's and early 80's. Quality control problems overtook them in the early 80's and they went bankrupt. Non cored 42's and 35's are prized restoration candidates. Many of the cored boats are great but suspect. Older Downeast design that was slow by new tuna boat standards. 12-16 knots through anything. Nauset bought the molds and built them for a few years. I don't know if they still build on demand or not. Beautiful, easily driven hulls.
