CATEGORY : Sportfish Cruisers
CONSTRUCTION: Sheet plywood planking/wood framing or welded aluminum

This stylish craft serves equally well for sportfishing or family cruising. Accommodations include an oversize v-berth forward, complete galley, hanging locker, a dinette that forms a 6'3" double berth, and enclosed head with lavy and space for a shower. Controls are on the flying bridge, and a roomy self-bailing cockpit nearly 9' long is aft.

A modern deep-v hull softens the ride with a 40+º vee forefoot, while the 18½º vee at the transom adds stability and performance in conjunction with wide chine flats and two lift strakes per side. Power comes from I/O units to 1300 lbs., or single or twin outboards (25" shaft length for singles; 20" or 25" for twins).

Building your own is not difficult nor expensive. The plywood planked hull has a ½" total bottom and sides, over sawn frames and longitudinal stiffeners. Or build in welded aluminum with 3/16 bottom and " sides. Plans include FULL-SIZE PATTERNS for the seven frame contours, stem, and transom, along with our instructions and material listings, plus fastening schedule on wood version.
