At this point, i am trying to identify shipyards that build wooden boats (all over the world) but it is rather difficult (i guess mainly cause these shipyards work in a more old fashion model so they don't use internet for their promotion). Location: Washington You might want to try posting this query on Wooden Boat Forum.

When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Delivering ultimate quality service and satisfaction is what will help us soar above the rest and maintain a well established reputation, We have built over 30 yacht of different lenghts between 20-45 meters in the past 30 years. Besides the fleet of vessels delivered, the newly designed  yacht construction have unique concepts where we intend to change the standard of luxury yachting forever.
Until the 1950’s, almost all yachts were made of wood or steel, but a much wider range of materials are used today. The use of wood has changed and is no longer limited to traditional board based methods, but also include modern products such as plywood, veneers, skinned balsa and epoxy resins.
Sailing yachts can range in overall length (Length Over All = LOA) from about 6 metres (20 ft) to well over 30 metres (98 ft), where the distinction between a yacht and a ship becomes blurred.
Cruising yachts are by the far the most common yacht in private use, making up most of the 7 metres (23 ft)-14 metres (46 ft) range. These yachts are generally 25 metres (82 ft) or longer, In recent years, these yachts have evolved from fairly simple vessels with basic accommodation into sophisticated and luxurious boats. On the biggest, 130-feet-plus (40 m) luxury yachts, every modern convenience, from air conditioning to television, is found. Racing yachts try to reduce their wet surface area, which creates drag, by keeping the hull light whilst having a deep and heavy bulb keel, allowing them to support a tall mast with a great sail area.
The motive force being the wind, sailing is more economical and environmentally friendly than any other means of propulsion. Monohull yachts are typically fitted with a fixed keel or a centreboard (adjustable keel) below the waterline to counterbalance the overturning force of wind on the vessel’s sails.
Our long expertise in the sea will do the job for you in delivering your yacht for sale that you will choose from our portfolio. There are tons of remote controlled cars and boats out there that you can buy or build, and you can add remote control functionality to almost anything. For more details on how it works, head over to the project page over on Starting Electronics. Regardless of size, damage, service or repair Hot Headz Marine can meet all your needs to keep your watercraft safe while being transported. The boat is aptly named due to the fact that it only goes 3-4 miles per hour at a pedaling rate of 50rpm.
91-year-old naval architect Phil Thiel, born in Brooklyn, now in Seattle has created human-powered boats since his teenage years.
Sailors tend to want headroom, as it keeps from being bashed about in rough seas and saves one from an aching back. To Daniel, I love pedal boating because it is generally easier, safer and softer on the body than walking the same distance.
Wow, I admire him because in his early teenage years he created this human-powered boat through pedaling.


I would probably make it pop up like earlier mentioned (either light weight materials in the pop up or heavy canvas), and might steal the idea of an extra solar panel or two and an electric motor (at least for use in slightly faster water, as most American waters get seasonally quick).
The Bay Pilot 18 is a smaller boat with very much the same underbody as the Jiffy V-22, which has earned high praise from its builders for good performance and excellent sea-keeping qualities. Construction uses the girder method (one each side in this boat); the hull is built upside down over a series of bulkheads and frames. The plans include nine large sheets of drawings, showing the hull at various stages of construction, full size details, cabin layout, and other information. The plans include drawings and instructions for the cabin cruiser and center console models show below.
EPOXY KIT:The epoxy kit comes from System Three Resins, and provides you with all the resin, hardener, fiberglass cloth, additives, measuring pumps, brushes, rollers, and other items that you will need. For example i know Riva used to make wooden boats (now though are plastic if i am not wrong).
A 25 m wooden fishing boat is not such a 'rara avis', although quickly dissapearing from european waters.
It is a little known fact that Turkey ranks fourth among the world’s luxury yacht producers with 10% of the large yacht production. The yacht construction are realized under the supervision of foundations which are recognized as first class within the international marine society such as ABS, Lloyds, GL, BV, RINA and internationally accepted principals and standards such as MCA, SOLAS, IMO and MARPOL.
Although wood hulls are still in demand, the most common construction material is fiberglass, followed by steel, aluminium, carbon fibre, Compozite and ferrocement (very few because of insurance difficulties). Wood is mostly used by carpenters or wooden boat enthusiasts when building an individual boat. Most privately owned yachts fall in the range of about 7 metres (23 ft)-14 metres (46 ft) , the cost of building and keeping a yacht rises quickly as length increases. Sometimes called dinghies, they often have a retractable keel, centreboard, or daggerboard. These vessels can be quite complex in design, as they need a balance between docile handling qualities, interior space, good light-wind performance and on-board comfort. Sailing yachts of this size are often highly automated with, for example, computer-controlled electric winches controlling the sails.
Modern designs tend to have a very wide beam and a flat bottom, to provide buoyancy preventing an excessive heel angle.
A hybrid type of vessel is a motor sailing yacht that can use either sail or propulsion (or both) as conditions dictate. Vessels less than 7 metres (23 ft) in length generally carry a petrol outboard-motor of between 3.5 kilowatts (5 hp) and 30 kilowatts (40 hp). But if you really want to stand out, there are few things more attention-grabbing than this radio-controlled watermelon boat by the folks over at Starting Electronics. This boat is not that efficient today but this is a great creation or invention history for me. Full size patterns, printed on Mylar, show the stem, transom, bulkheads, building frames, girders, and other items. It is also often overlooked that one of the world’s top mega yacht builders are located in this rapidly developing market. In the United States, sailors tend to refer to smaller yachts as sailboats, while referring to the general sport of sailing as yachting. Most day sailing yachts do not have a cabin, as they are designed for hourly or daily use and not for overnight journeys.


The huge range of such craft, from dozens of builders worldwide, makes it hard to give a single illustrative description. Larger vessels have in-board diesel engines of between 15 kilowatts (20 hp) and 75 kilowatts (101 hp) depending on size. Thiel’s Friend Ship might be more suitable as a live aboard, although I believe it is designed for motor, rather than pedal, power. Also included is an illustrated building manual, which takes you step by step through the building process.
Within the limited context of sailboat racing, a yacht is any sailing vessel taking part in a race, regardless of size. Modern yachts have efficient sail-plans, most notably the Bermuda rig, that allow them to sail towards the wind.
The hull shape (or twin-keel layout) allows the boat to sit upright when there is no water. However, most favour a teardrop-planform hull, with a wide, flat bottom and deep single-fin keel to give good stability.
Dedicated offshore racing yachts sacrifice crew comfort for speed, having basic accommodation to reduce weight. In the common 7 metres (23 ft)-14 metres (46 ft) class, engines of 20 to 40 horsepower are the most common. It includes specifications, a list of materials, sources for marine plywood, and other information. The evolution to new markets, mainly going from commercial to pleasure, is the main solution.
Such boats are designed to undertake short journeys, rarely lasting more than 2 or 3 days (hence their name). Most are single-masted Bermuda rigged sloops, with a single fore-sail of the jib or Genoa type and a single mainsail. Modern sailing yachts can be equipped with electric inboard motors in order to reduce consumption of fossil fuel.
Anyhow, there are markets regarding commercial fishing boats which wood has lost here almost without fighting; I'm talking about the small planning units up to 10 m length (more or less), which are actually built up in GRP or aluminium, but could also be done in wooden boards-epoxy as well. Now all but the smallest, most basic yachts have electric lighting, radio, and navigation aids such as Global Positioning Systems.
The latest technology are outboard electric pod drives that can also regenerate electricity (motogens). These types are often chosen as family vessels, especially those in the 26 to 40-feet (8 to 12 m) range. Yachts around 10 metres (33 ft) bring in comforts such as hot water, pressurised water systems, and refrigerators. Clever use of ergonomics allows space in the saloon for a galley (kitchen), seating, and navigation equipment. This means that the auxiliary engine now also performs the vital function of powering an alternator to provide electrical power and to recharge the yacht’s batteries. For yachts engaged on long-range cruising, wind, water and solar-powered generators can perform the same function. The smallest of this type, generally called pocket yachts or pocket cruisers, and trailer sailers can be transported on special trailers.
