MOTOR BOAT DESIGNS & PLANS
FOR MOTOR BOATS 21' TO 30' IN LENGTH

 

Study Plans are available for some of these designs - remember a study plan gives you more details and a wood materials list usually on two A1 sheets, so that you can cost out a project before ordering the full plans. When you order the full construction plans you do not need to order the study plan as well, as all the study details are on the full plans.

We have 14 designs, of various different styles and types

 

Note - In the particulars for each design, the dry weight is given for guidance only and will vary depending on the grade/density of plywood and solid wood used - different thicknesses of ply are often used by builders and the dry weight figure is based on the thinnest ply specified.
Also the Guidance Use comments are given in good faith and are based on feedback from previous builders etc and based on standard weight adults - contact us if you want further clarification before ordering/building.
Speed and power requirements are also based on feedback and estimates and are for guidance only - actual speeds attained will depend on loading etc.

POWER 2

Power 2Power 2

A 21’ x 7’ bigger sister to the Power 1 design using the same easy construction method and having a similar double chine construction with a flat bottom panel simplifying her building and producing an easy planing hull form. The hull, seats and cabin take around 13 sheets of 9mm and 5 sheets of 12mm ply and she weighs approx. 500 lbs. excl. engine.
Both the Power 1 and 2 designs are designed for multi role use either as fast launches or as load carriers and because both have parallel sectional shapes aft, they can be shortened or stretched in length to suit your own requirements. One example of a Power 2 stretched to 24’ has been used as a dive support craft in the Bristol Channel and Irish Sea. With twin 40 hp outboards and fully loaded she could plane with speeds of over 30 knots.

POWER 3  
 
Soon after our Power 2.2 left the drawing board, we were asked to extend it and produce a design which, in a compact form, could accommodate a large aft cabin with a central wheelhouse and forward dinette. So the beam has been increased to 8’10’’ and the length to 24’7’’ but the same easy riding ‘U’ hull form with double chine has been used. This gives plenty of internal volume and weight carrying capacity along with high stability.
The plans for the Power 3 show details for a forward dinette with a good sized galley and a separate WC and shower compartment. The wheelhouse has an ‘L’ shaped settee which can also form a bunk and the aft compartment has room for a double berth along with a dresser. The drawings show a single 30 hp engine arrangement but twin 50 hp engines could be installed. Construction details are given for both ply/epoxy construction using computer generated hull panel shapes and for ply construction over a framework of ply bulkheads and stringers. LOA 24’7’’ (7.50m); Beam 8’10’’ (2.70m); Approx. Draft 2’6’’ (0.74m); Displ. 6500 lbs (2950 kg).

21' IJSSEL LAUNCH  
This launch has been designed for diesel propulsion (10-15 hp) but she can also take steam or electric propulsion. The layout drawn for her is a simple open thro’ plan with no obstructing bulkheads but she could be fitted out in a variety of ways—a saloon and/or canopy could be fitted.
Construction is Cedar strip plank and the plans give computer faired mould shapes—she could just as easily be built using the clinker/ply method too.
The hull has a full bodied wineglass shape and the forward sections are well flaired. She has the capacity to take up to 10 or more crew.

The above is an Ijssel 21 under construction by Pieter Brittijn
Left - the same example but set up with a semi traditional construction - frames and bilge stringer in place ready for planking, the moulds having been removed
......and planked.

 

Below is a nice clinker version by John Robson.

John's example uses a Petter Mini Twin which develops 11hp @ 3000rpm linked to a 14"x12" 2 bladed prop through a 2:1 reduction hydraulic gearbox.

NEW  30' IJSSEL LAUNCH

An American client wanted to produce a replica of the African Queen and saw our Ijssel launch as offering a craft of similar style—so we increased her length to 30’ and beam to 8’ (later we were asked to increase the beam still further to 10’ and this alteration is included with the plans. The layout is for a simple open arrangement and this may be altered to suit and she could certainly take a saloon/cabin.

Like her smaller sister, she has well flared forward sections with a full midships section leading into a pretty wineglass transom. The computer faired mould sections and details are given for Cedar Strip construction but the plans include construction details for steel as well.

NEW  22' RUFUS MOTOR CRUISER

The standard 17’ Rufus plans include the frame and panel shapes for both a 20’ and a fantailed stern version but we have been getting many requests for a slightly longer version and so we jumped at the chance to draw up a completely new set of plans when asked to lengthen the standard design.

The 22 footer has the same rugged displacement hull type as the smaller version with the exception that an additional chine has been added. The construction is basically ply panel over a ply eggbox type framework but details are also given for stitch and tape and the combi-stringer methods.

She may be powered by an outboard in a well but the drawings are based on a 20 hp inboard unit and the standard arrangement is for V berths forward with space for a wc and with a galley in the wheelhouse and an aft cockpit. However, like the 17’ version, she could be fitted out in a number of different ways with layouts to suit individual requirements.

LOD 22’ (6.71m); Beam 8’1” (2.46m); Draft 2’ (0.61m); Displ. To WL 3947lbs (1790kg); Approx. weight 2756 lbs. (1250kg).

NEW  26' IJSSEL LAUNCH

Marlow 27

It had to happen of course—having designed  21’ and 30 Ijssel launches, someone would want something in between and here it is. The hull is very much of the Ijssel high volume stable model with plenty of space for whatever internal arrangement you need at this length. In this set of drawings though, the client asked for a simple forward cabin. This gives convenient shelter to sit and lie in or to arrange a small wc. The cabin could easily be extended and could of course be used on the 21’ and 30 Ijssels.

Like her sisters, construction is for Cedar strip plank and whilst the drawings give details for diesel machinery installation, she could take steam or electric.

LOD 25’10” (7.87m); Beam 8’ (2.43m); Draft 2’ 7 1/2” (0.80m); Displ. To WL 6615lbs (3000kg); Approx. weight 3750 lbs. (1700kg).

HOWTH HEAD 22  
The Howth Head is a plywood version of the steel Lambay Island design. Like the Lambay, she is a 22' motor boat with a large cockpit area and comfortable accommodation with 2 large berths, w.c. compartment and galley with dining space in the cockpit.

Construction is ply hull panels over a framework of plywood bulkheads/frames slotted onto a ply fore and aft girder. the chine seams are either conventional wood stringers or expoy and tape. She may take inboard engines up to 50 hp.

Below is an example by Dennis Nissan - she has been increased in size to 30' by multiplying all the panel and frame shapes by a scaling factor.

NEW 26' SKELLIG WOOD FISHING/WORKBOAT
The Skellig 26 is a wood version of the Saltee Island. She has the same rugged hull design for use as a  workboat/fishing boat for coastal and offshore use. She has a large cockpit and enclosed wheelhouse with space below for a simple wc and/or galley.

The plans give details for the hull to be built in strip Cedar with a round bilge hull and a plywood hull which is multi-chined. In both cases construction is rugged and very strong for work use.

The hull has a U bottomed shape giving an easy riding displacement hull that can be fitted out in a number of different ways. The hull could also be fitted out as a rugged pleasure craft with larger wheelhouse/forward cabin.

NEW  STOUR 23
 The Stour 23 has a simple 'V' bottomed hull form giving an easily driven shape that is also faster to build. Construction starts with a simple arrangement of plywood frames and bulkheads slotted together on a plywood central girder. Chine stringers are then fitted, planned up and the ply hull skin fitted - or the pre-shaped hull panels can be fitted to the framework and the chines finished with epoxy/glass. 

 The Stour is basically a fishing boat so she has a large aft cockpit and a forecabin which has 2 berth/settees and space for a small galley and wc.

 Two options are given for the transom/engine arrangement - either the outboard can be fitted directly to the transom with a slopped well in front of it or the outboard is fitted further forward so that the outboard is fully protected by the hull.

 The hull could be fitted out in a number of ways - with an aft cabin etc - the arrangement above is the one shown on the plans.
