Build our boats for profit, How To.

Post by jacquesmm » Thu Apr 08, 2010 10:10 am

Here it is a nutshell, for the USA:
Plans license:
The purchase of the plans at bateau gives you the right to build one boat. What you buy is a building license,
If you want to build only 2 or 3 boats, you must buy 2 or 3 set of plans.
If you decide to build more than 5 boats, you can negotiate a building license deal with Mertens-Goossens Yacht Design Inc., the designer.
Technical:
Once you decide to build more than 5 boats and deal with MGYD, we can supply other services like USCG calculations for capacity tag, upright flotation and other legal requirements, small changes, molds and jigs specs etc.
Legal:
You should become member of the NMMA. They will help with the legal and commercial part. I, the designer, will help with the technical legal requirements as above: USCG rules, ABYC standard conformity.
All that covers only builders who commit more than 5 boats.
The ideal path is to build a couple of boats as an amateur to optimize your building techniques and to have something to show to potential customers.
