How long does it take a person or a team, to setup a new ship for c-store?

How long does the shaping and designing take?
How long the distribution of BOFFs, Hull points, weaponslots etc...

And how long is the testing phase, and from there...how much time is needed until it is purchaseable in c-store?

This episode of Priority One podcast has some of the answers you seek...

These episodes of STOked have even more...

i saw both stoked episodes you linked and even the one where both visited cryptic. unfortunately i failed to watch the priority one podcast, and i don't follow that regularely.
Many questions are answered in stoked, but not the duration of designing a ship until it is implemented.

so could you be so kind to answer the question: "how long does it take to develope a ship?"

Depends on the ship and the gimmick it uses. I think it took about a year to put the Odyssey on the C-Store. While the Ferengi shuttle might have took only a week.

yeah odyssey is not a real measurement, since that was a fan competition. I'm more interested in the actuall work that is involved in setting the BOFF slots, consoles, and maybe special consoles that come with the ship.
none of the shows linked before seem to give an answer to that, or i just missed something.

it seems they bring out 1 ship every 2 month, but 2 month to design a ship, even by a single person (and the model existing allready) seems in terms of productiveness, very, very low in my opinion.

But thats why i asked, since i don't know. But i want to know.
