Aluminum Landing Craft

This vessel was constructed for an up-market Phuket resort. Access to the resort is only by sea and the owner wanted an adaptable, fast, safe and reliable boat. The landing craft is used for passenger and stores transportation, day picnic excursions and dive trips.

This design is from Specmar and the vessel is powered with a 240 HP Yanmar LHAM diesel plus Mercruiser Bravo II-X sterndrive unit.

Top speed during sea trials was 28 knots with comfortable cruising in medium sea conditions at 22 knots.

Steel Motor Yacht

Let us build your Steel Motor or Sailing Yacht and make the dream come true.

Arthur Ransome once said in his book, “The desire to build a boat is the desire of youth, unwilling yet to accept the idea of a final resting-place. It is for that reason, perhaps, that, when it comes, the desire to build a boat is one of those that cannot be resisted. It begins as a little cloud on a serene horizon. It ends by covering the whole sky, so that you can think of nothing else. You must build to regain your freedom. And always you comfort yourself with the thought that yours will be the perfect boat, the boat that you may search the harbours of the world for and not find.”

Very small amount of filler required for fairing

This particular design can be supplied with full interior customization drawn by a qualified marine interior designer. The full interior design package comes complete with CNC [dxf] cutting files to enable rapid construction of the interior and furniture.

The layout and styling are carefully considered in the build of your new boat and you get to work directly with the interior designer so that the level of customization achieved is exactly what you want.

All non-structural bulkheads, window moldings and furniture are constructed using rot-proof GRP in very light sandwich type construction then faired and sanded for a paint finish.

Do not under-estimate the required budget for a high quality steel boat of around 50′ and be aware that the price to build a custom vessel like this in 2013 is a minimum of US$850,000 at any professional boat building yard.

Steel Trawler Yacht

A transom door and large swim/dive platform were two of the many additions made to the boat pictured

It is important that, where possible, all potential changes or customization’s are mutually agreed upon as viable prior to the project starting and written in as additions to the draft contract for implementation.

We are currently developing four acres of land at Sattahip, Chonburi, Thailand and have the ability to transport boats up to 20M [65′] in length with considerable beam of up to 9M [29.5′] for launching at a local dockyard.

Get your dream boat built by Coastal Boats in Thailand at a fair price for excellent quality and start cruising to search those harbors of the world.
