New build, but not a trawler?

BruceB's thread on their American Tug build has surely been one of the more popular ones here at TF. I enjoyed it immensely and their enthusiasm was contagious.

While this place is called "Trawler Forum," the definition is somewhat loose, right? For example lots of semi displacement boats here. Boats that to me were never considered Trawlers, but are now under the big Trawler tent.

I'm beginning a new build myself. About the most trawlerish features of our boat will be the pilot house and portuguese bridge. Beyond that, sort of falls beyond the description for me anyway. It will have twin diesels, it can go 15/17 knots if necessary.

I'm not ready to do the reveal yet, and really we won't have much to say for some time as the hull layup is just beginning (in China).

So the question is, would a thread on a motor yacht build be welcomed here?

At 15-17 knots WOT he's not going to be towing many water skiers.

Yes, we welcome you but then our boats are less trawlerish than yours. Depending on definition the forum is either 0.1% trawler, 3% trawler or 30% trawler or 70% trawler.

Part of the fun of new builds is seeing what's new in the industry whether it's a technique, material, or design concept. By all means, show us lots of pictures please!
