    I have been looking at a virpak trawler for a friend of mine.
    The yacht was built at KIM yachts in asia.
    Does any one have any information on that yard?
    Any feedback at all would be helpful.
    Thanks

    No thats not the one, that one is really not well designed with standpipes in the middle of the interior, But thanks for finding a bit more of the yards history.

    Its this one
    2004 Kim Yachts Vripack 69 Power Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

    Its quite good looking, but who knows how well its built??
    It could be all show and no go.
    Thanks

    similar looks, but most likely different yachts:

    the OP refers to the KIM China (?) built 21,5m loa with 2 x Cat 3306 on yachtworld

    the Vripack link is to the Kuipers NL built MY BOLWERK 20,0m loa with 2 x Cummins

    Wow! Those may be different boats, but I'd like to take a tape measure to both of them. I'd be willing to bet those came off the same drawings from Vripack.

    it's easy - just add water and 6ft of hull !
