I did several of them by my own.
One is jet powered and a conversion on the "Daycruiser" by Kehrer:

Two other models are for display only, but can be built as rc-boats too. The "Bertram 37" is 1/30 scale, the "SHAMAL 70" in 1/20 (1070mm loa).

Those boats are very nice.

I hope my 6' Scratch built can someday look as good.

Whoa!!!

That is a real looker!!! Your own design or something else?

first thing I thought when I saw the dark hull was "Midnight Lace"... not sure if those boats are still being made...

Edit... how about that! they are!!! http://www.laceyachts.com/

A few mixed between the build stages.

Hull bottom is a Miller 70'. Carbon, Aramid, Biaxial 1208 and Foam Construction, Infusion with Epoxy Resin. Black Supreme Gelcoat and Vinylester Skin Coat.

Top side is mixed from the Miller, but with a few major changes

LOA is 70", Scale 1:12.

Electrical, Multimedia... Seems like you've picked up some tooling experience along the way too!

Miller looks like a nice, clean design!
