Hey guys,

Feast your eyes on this!
Would be nice to have an unlimited budget, sheesh!

East Boothbay, Maine
USA 04544

LIBERTY
Launched: 1996
Length: 80 feet
Beam: 15 feet
Designer: Bruce King
Interior design: Allan Walton

This modern classic from the drawing board of Bruce King reflects the Wall Street commuters of the early 1900's. Her strong, stiff and light cold molded hull with her distinct round transom and hard chine bottom is fast and maneuverable. Powered by twin MAN V12's she can turn a top speed of 33+ knots and cruise down the coast all day at 25 knots. Liberty's interior shows off the talents and collaboration of a Walton design and Hodgdon construction techniques. The use of aerospace technology and traditional joinery yields a strong lightweight and spacious accommodation.

An amazing series of steps to build a custom composite design.
If these were not one-off designs, the process could turn toward "manufacturing" rather than
custom building by hand.

I can only imagine the millions of dollars required for all this.
