Trawler Yacht 470  FIBERGLASS boat plans & FSP

These trawlers are designed in accordance with Lloyds  for category 1 (unrestricted operating / sailing area), which is much better than the EU and other Classification Societies and the  CE-A require. Complete stability calculations to USCG offshore requirements are included in the design package. All calculations are also cross referenced against ABS requirements to ensure that the design meets world-wide standards and specifications.

In the case of KITS, all plate parts belonging to the hull, deck and superstructure that are accurately cut to size are included. The parts are marked with the appropriate part number and engraved matching marking lines to assist in the assembly and location of the part in its position. Cutting method is Plasma / Oxygen, ensuring highest accuracy and smooth edges.
 
Plate parts are cut from Lloyds approved A Grade Shipbuilding quality STEEL that has been coated with factory applied Sigma weld MC welding primer.  We use and recommend steel plate that has the official designation ISO standard 10474 or EN 10204 with 3.1.B certificate.

JANUARY 2013 - Hi Bruce, We launched our trawler (RACCSO) day November 18, 2012 in the waters of the Rio Guaiba Porto Alegre in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

The boat is very beautiful, we have to put something in ballast lead since it was built in aluminum and it weighs less than the original design. 

The final speed engine with 115 hp yanmar reached 9.5 knots, and a cruising speed of 8 knots with the engine at 1800 rpm.   With the auxiliary motor of 54 hp got to 6 knot cruising speed.

The boat was very stable and pleasant to navigate.  Best regards  Rubem Koefender  Curtume Rusan  51 3714 4400

Forward area of Version C

Peter & Maggie Mais who built their TY43 in Canada arrived in Annapolis yesterday.  I went to inspect her. The boat looks Great !  They are probably 90% complete and are heading south to finish her in the warmth.  All are pleased with her performance both in terms of speed & handling.  With a Cummins B210 they see an honest 7-8 knots at cruising RPM.  They are very pleased with the fuel economy they are getting.  They report she handles well and feels stable under all sea and wind conditions..
 
 

The welding looked good, and the joiner work was nice. The boat has more space than I thought she would have, especially below.  The pilothouse size is nice, the saloon is a good size.  They felt they could have put more in it than they did.
 

Engine space is huge, I could stand easily in it.
 

I've run the freeboards I measured from the TY43 and find that her displacement as she sat was 67,016 lbs.  This number compares favourably to our estimated 3/4 load weight of 71,169 lbs.  Hal Whitacre Naval architect.

COMMENTS from CANADIAN TY 43 builder ... Geir Fossan:

Hi Bruce, We have now ready to launch the boat.  Everything has gone very well.  The kit was great to work with. I have no complains whatsoever.  We will try to send you some pictures when we transport it to the quay. Best regards  Geir Fossan

COMMENTS from CANADIAN TY 43 builder ... Maggie Mais:
Hi Bruce. Sorry its taken so long to reply. Life is hectic. 2 kids, 2 puppies, 2 birds, 1 unfinished boat and mother nature has kicked in with a vengeance. Winter is here all too quickly and we have paint to apply. The project is going well. Peter is going to start the paint on Sunday!!! The interior is 90% complete with the exception of engine hook-up, plumbing, batteries and engine room completion. We are so pleased with the quality of woodwork our shipwright has done.

The interior is done in maple, ceilings are tongue and groove pine. The windows and doors are in (diamond sea glaze). The galley is unbelievable. I love to cook, and my galley is used hard. The room with which to work was very spacious. So abundant it was, I had a kitchen cabinetry business in our local area design and build and install the galley. All we had to do was slide the fridge in and mount the gimballed stove. Countertops are Corona (TM), double sinks are recessed and we designed a bar area directly across from the galley, beside the circular steps leading to berth area. I must say, given our years of boating experience, we have designed and customized our vessels layout, far better than our land based home.  Fondly, Maggie A Mais.


COMMENTS from Australian builder of  Trawler Yacht 43
Numerous professionals have been coming in to see our TY43 build and all are amazed or surprised at the quality of workmanship and the fairness of the hull (thanks to your kit). One was the shipwright who will be doing the fit out. He comes from the timber boat building industry and his comments were "I've never seen anybody achieve this with steel.


FROM PROFESSIONAL BUILDER:
Hi Bruce,  Thought I would e-mail you a couple of pictures of the 43' Voyager TY. Things are going well, and should be setting side shell later this week. Will be setting keel and rudder tomorrow. Altogether we have about 60 hours in at this point, not bad considering we only have had 1 man working steady on it!!  Rumor has it there is a 57' possibly looking for a construction site from Colorado. We are having so much fun we'd love to build some more!!! Could you add us to your Metal Boat newsletter as a West Coast assembly company??? It would be great if you could. Well, Bye for now, back to welding! Bart Samaduroff.


FROM OWNER / BUILDER:
Hi Bruce. Thanks for letting us know about the pictures on your web site. They look great and are quite similar to our present stage. We have just finished painting the engine room, installing the custom fuel tanks and are putting lead in the keel, then the engine goes in. From there we will build upward (we felt tanks and engine needed to be installed first). Anyway its going well. Often times it is slow, and then we seem to make great leaps and bounds. Overall we are very happy to date with the project. The boat should be at an extremely fun stage by then as the interior goes together. I will send you photos sometime down the road.  I will keep you posted. Take Care and we'll talk again soon. Fondly, Maggie
