Rory , In current conditions not a lot of guys building a hell of a lot of new boats so R&D only smouldering 

The ones that are still going is the 25 and 28 ft CapeCraft mostly sold as hull / deck / bulkheads and the commercials finish off their own boats .

the 2nd option is the 28ft Ocean Runner and has been built a few times as a WA sport fisher.
some pics.

Hey not to hijack my own thread , but these commercial monohulls can take insane amounts of fish

always laugh when you Natal Okes pose with few cudas and a dorado or two in the mix w;k

this is what a capie with few tons of geelbek looks like coming home
