Storebro 31 Adriatic

I am considering buying this boat (not this precisely but this model)
Storebro 31 Adriatic

and my question is ... how feasible is it to add a hardtop and back door in order to make it lockable.
A bit like it's brother the Baltic model*
Baltic

Any ideas?
Kind Regards
Marc

Not sure exactly what you have in mind, but you should consider that adding more weight above the water line, raising the center of gravity, will affect the balance.
Good Luck,

Adding a permenant hard top would not be hard but sealing the entire deck area into a lockable area would be lots of work.


First it might look like CRAP , second even with high tech construction you will add 2 -3 lbs per sq foot.

I wasn't thinking in enclosing the whole deck, more like half or so.
The reason I am even considering this rpoject is because the boat is selling for 1/20 of the value quoted by the nice gentlemen before you

HEREis antoehr enclosure. The sliding aluminium patio door used here is clearly a poor choice. I thought you could give me a nicer idea.
