Voyager TY 57 - This is an ideal boat for those where their cruising area needs a great shallow draft trawler.

SHOAL DRAFT Twin Tunnel Stern ALUMINUM OR STEEL KIT or Cutting files and boat plans
This kit is available for building in Steel or Aluminum and the first version has a twin tunnel shoal draft hull designed to operate at up to 25 knots.  We have now delivered the first kit. We also supplied a complete set of windows as part of the package.

NEW PASSAGEMAKING DESIGNS:  This is your opportunity to have your own passagemaking 'Voyager' designed and built at an affordable price. Now is your opportunity to put those pieces together into one boat that you REALLY like ! Consider customizing one of our new designs. Bring us YOUR ideas. We can offer Steel or Aluminum boat plans and Cutting files, CUT-TO-SIZE KITS or Part-Built or Complete Boats. The Trawler Yacht 55 is already a popular design and we have sold a number of sets of cutting files and kits for this serious offshore vessel.

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 ... MARINE ALUMINUM OR ...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.

FROM BUILDER:
Hi, By the way, the trawler yacht of Bruce's design that we are currently building is coming along very well.  The quality of the kit parts are the best we have ever seen, and as a result, we are saving time in the build.  We have almost all of the plate hung in place and tacked up.   We anticipate the seam welding will start within a few weeks as there are some details to attend to. But we must say again, that we are very happy with the kit quality. Hope to hear from you soon ....Brian

LETTER FROM A CUSTOMER WHO IS BUILDING FROM ONE OF OUR KITS.

Hello Bruce,  Hope everything is going well. I can se your home page is growing larger by the minute.  
My boat building is coming along fine. Everything is fitting nicely as it should. My crew is excellent and they are enjoying building a boat like this (regards to restoring old boats).

The yard is next to the  *"Swedish Maritime Administration" and there people were surprised with the speed that the boat has been developing. They thought that we have had 10 persons for several months when in fact we have had three for a couple of weeks.

The hull and deck plates are in place and the wheelhouse is starting to take shape. We are estimating that we will start welding everything within a couple of weeks. We calculate that we will have the boats maiden voyage inn late spring.

If you are going to the Nordic region in the fall or spring, please give us a call I would be proud to show what my crew has done with the kit you supplied. Long mail to get to the point but I wanted to inform you of something positive instead of coming with a lot of questions.
Best regards Andreas Dahlstrand

FROM CUSTOMER: Thank you for answering my message. I have spent 100's of hours researching  different firms and their offerings. Yours is the only one that offers a complete package in the USA.  Again, thank you for your time as other firms only seem willing to respond if you are prepared to spend a great deal of money.  Terry McCarty  ( Terry has now ordered a Voyager 620 package )
