Nice boats. Looks like they have mostly built 100'+ traditional luxury yachts in the past. Given the scantlings of these vessels, when you say "liveaboard", where were you thinking? Antarctica? An ice class rating seems a bit overkill otherwise. One thing that confused me about their site.... Under the construction link, it appears they are saying that below the waterline the steel is 600mm thick, which would be around 20". Really?
