an 18 1/2' outboard cruiser
The TWO PLUS is designed in a traditional style that harks back to the heyday of mahogany cruisers. She features complete cruising accommodations for two, plus an optional fold out canvas berth for the kids. Her roomy vee berths are a full 6'6" in length. The efficiently organized cabin makes this boat an ideal camping boat. The head area is enclosed for privacy, unusual on a boat this size. A compact galley area has room for a sink, stove, and ice box. Plus, there's hanging space and plenty of storage areas. The cockpit has room for fishing or sitting while sightseeing, and in warm weather has room for sleeping bags for sleeping under the stars.
Using 3/8" plywood planking, the hull is designed for lightweight, allowing her to get up on a plane quickly with minimal power. With larger motors, the TWO PLUS can easily pull skiers. The broad flare at the bow keeps the boat dry running, and the bridge windshield keeps the bugs out of your teeth underway.
Like most cabin cruisers, it is possible to change the cabin configuration. One builder eliminated the cabin completely to make a roomy touring boat for taking visiting relatives on sight seeing tours up his local river. Whatever your need, take a good look at the TWO PLUS, she's a boat full of possibilities.
