  • This classic design has lines and style reminiscent of a period of elegant yachting, however her hull is suited for modern plywood and epoxy or steel construction. She has plenty of room for several guests and has potential as a charter yacht or a floating B&B. She can have many of the comforts suited to her style without becoming overcrowded, boxy or expensive to build and operate.

    With a proper diesel, perhaps a Detroit 6-71 she will cruise long distances at a civilized and affordable pace. Her pilothouse is set for a real mahogany ship's wheel, polished brass instruments and traditional hardware. Her salon is large, making it a fine place to watch the scenery as she cruises along the coast and waterways.

    Estimated cost for quality construction materials (not including power) is $4 to $6 per pound. This cost includes a high level of outfit and finish you can be proud of after putting the effort into building this fine boat.
