I was cruising around the web and came across Boat Plans Online. They have one particular plan that I like, the HM18 http://www.bateau.com/plans/power/HM18.php3 They offer plans as well as a CNC kit that seems reasonably priced. Also, the 18 as it turns out is actually a 19. Even at 19' it is still a little smaller than what I was looking for. According to one of their designers they plan on introducing an HM22 in the near future.
These bateau folks really to have quite a design/plan/kit program going (sure would like to know the software program that 'paints the pics' of their latest larger designs). I have not visited bateau in 2 years or so and they have grown. Nice to know some of these designs have been built. Sure like their approach to plywood composite construction. Even if you did not build a boat yourself, and hired someone to build, having a kit arrive at the builders would still lower costs--plus you get the boat design you want. My favorite is 'Nina' as a softer ride at cruising speed, through a chop, is high on my list lately.
