MOTOR BOAT DESIGNS & PLANS
FOR MOTOR BOATS UP TO 16' LENGTH


We have 16 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 1  
Power 1 16’x5’6’’ ply motor launch of ultra simple construction using pre-shaped ply hull panels, frames and transom. The chine joints are completed with epoxy resin fillets and tape making construction quick. A weekend’s work will see the hull panels marked out, cut, stitched together, frames and transom in place and all seams epoxied. She uses 4 sheets of 6mm and 3 sheets of 12mm ply in her basic construction (hull, seats etc).
Approximately 250 lbs lightweight depending on how you fit her out. A 20 hp outboard will give a speed of around 25 mph. She can be fitted out to your own requirements. She was originally designed for Scottish waters where she has been very successful.

POWER 1.2

Power 1.2Power 1.2

The Power 1.2 is a development of our Power 1 design. She has increased beam and the chine has been lowered to give a more stable shape so that her side decks can be used comfortably. The drawings give details for a cabin arrangement with 2 full length berths and plenty of stowage for cooking gear. The aft end has been kept as a parallel section so that increasing or decreasing her length is quite simple and she can be fitted out to suit your own requirements (we will be happy to advise and draw up details of any particular changes to the arrangement shown on the drawings). Construction is quick and simple and she can take outboards up to 50 hp. LOA 16'1" (4.9m); Beam 6'5" (1.96m); Construction weight 400 lb. (183 kg) - open version; 680 lb.(310 kg) - cabin version. A wheelhouse arrangement is also included - see Photo Gallery page for photos of an extended version of the Power 1.2 with standing headroom and 5 berths.

POWER 14  
The hull for this launch was originally based on our Power 16 model but instead of going for a simple flat bottom panel, we have used a 'V' bottom shape. Whilst this makes construction time a little longer it gives a slightly better ride in choppy conditions. The plans give details for both simple stitch and tape and ply on frame construction.
She has a large open cockpit with plenty of locker space. Forward is an optional cuddy. 11 sheets of 6mm ply plus a further sheet of 9mm are used for the hull construction and 2 sheets of 6mm ply are used for the optional cuddy. LOA 14'6" (4.42m); Beam 5'6" (1.67m); Approx wht. 375 lbs (170 kg); for the open version and 475 lbs (215 kg) for the cuddy version.

8' SKIFFLE JUNIOR MOTOR BOAT

The 8' Skiffle is a simple motor boat designed for children to use although she can accommodate a small adult. The hull uses a flat bottom panel with single bilge and side panels and uses simple stitch & tape methods in her construction. She can take outboard motors of around 5 to 7hp - she could take more powerful motors but 7hp is a safe limit. Construction takes just 4 sheets of 6mm plywood. LOA 7'5" (2.26m); Beam 4'1" (6.35m).

12' SAND MARTIN SIMPLE RUNABOUT  

Using between 5 and 6 sheets of 6mm ply the Sand Martin uses simple stitch and tape technology in her construction. She can be fitted out in a number of different ways but the standard arrangement shows two thwarts with side benches aft and a foredeck with stowage space below. Weight will be approx. 120 lbs (54kg) and she can take outboard engines between 2 and 15 hp. With a beam of 4'11" (1.49m), she has plenty of room for fishing and is a very stable craft.
The example below was built by Kevin Ansell using sheets of grp in much the same way as a stitch and tape ply hull would be built.

SHETLAND 14 WORKBOAT
This sturdy craft has been designed for a client in Scotland who wanted a rugged general purpose boat for fishing and diving in rough water. She may only be 14’ long, but she is for all that, a large boat and she incorporates both integral buoyancy tanks and a water ballast tank.
There is plenty of seating plus an outboard well and she may be fitted out with an inboard engine. The standard construction plans have all the hull panel and frame shapes for steel construction but she can of course, be made from plywood using stitch and epoxy methods. LOA 14’3’’ (4.34m); Beam 6’ (1.83m); Draft 8’’ (0.2m); Approx. weight 350 lbs.

15' ELECTRIC SKIFF
Electric Skiff
A lovely little skiff made from four sheets of 1/4’’ plywood using simple stitch and tape techniques. She has a fine entry for moving quickly and easily under electric outboard power (a conventional petrol outboard may also be used) with a stern wide enough to take someone sitting comfortably without upsetting the trim of the boat too much. 14’7’’ x 3’9’’ and approx 75 lbs., she is ideal for car topping to remote canals and rivers for some quiet fishing. She may be adapted with a trolley for wheeling around locks or will take an outboard well if preferred.

15' RASCAL MOTOR DORY/SKIFF
Rascal Dory
This is a simple and very easily built motor dory for use with outboards up to around 50 hp in size. She can either be made by wrapping the pre-shaped sides around the frames, fastening on an external chine stringer and then putting the bottom ply on oversize, or, by simple stitch and epoxy methods using pre-shaped ply bottom and side panels which are given on the drawing.
She can be fitted out very much to suit your own requirements and she could take a cuddy or small cabin. She uses 7 sheets of 9mm ply and has a length of 15’ and beam of 5’6’’.

NEW 15' LOBSTER BOAT
This motorboat is based on a typical Maine Lobster boat and has been designed for strip plank construction (although she could be built using clinker/ply techniques using the same moulds). The hull has a high freeboard with flat planing sections aft and tumblehome worked into the hull aft.

She is essentially an open boat with a narrow side decking and bench seating with stowage under, however, she could be fitted out in a number of ways and could take a small cuddy/fore cabin.

The plans now also include details for an alternative layout with foredeck (below).

NEW  15'1" PORT PEGASUS ROWING & MOTOR BOAT
Marlow 27

The Port Pegasus is a clinker boat which may be used as a pure rowing boat or fitted with a small diesel (ie Farymann 7.5) as a small motor launch with classic appearance.

As a general purpose launch, she could be fitted out in a variety of different ways—ie. With a small cuddy, centre console arrangement or even with an appropriate sail/keel plan. The drawings give the computer faired mould shapes and building jig details for modern clinker construction—framing incorporates the plywood bulkheads etc. Mid hull depth is 1’9” (0.53m).

NEW  16' WHOOPING SWAN
Marlow 27

 The Whooping Swan is a development of the 16' Grey Swan pocket cruiser - a client asked me to alter the hull so that it would take an outboard with a wheelhouse - in doing this we have added buoyancy to the aft end and made the transom more vertical to take an outboard. Headroom in the wheelhouse is around 5’11! (1.80m) and a 5 hp outboard would move her along nicely.

 At first, the plans were in addition to the standard Grey Swan plans which meant that you needed the original Grey Swan plans to get all the details to construct the boat. However, I have now added further plans so that it is now a design in it's own right.

 Construction is for stitch and tape although details are also given for simple chine stringers so the hull can be built using the ply over frame method.   

Below is a card model of the motor version by Brent.
