With a full keel and carbon hull, Perry's new 43 is a burly bluewater boat
First off, the name Bulletproof 43 was always intended as a joke. The client said, “Call it bulletproof” one day in jest and it stuck. Secondly, there is nothing standard or normal about this project. I met with the client. We agreed that the boat would be an offshore-capable cutter with full keel, outboard rudder and generous displacement, similar to the client’s last boat.
