Possibly the most famous wooden boat worldwide, the Aquarama was an intricate design with a ground breaking approach to both comfort and quality. She was designed with a bizarre frame set up ranging from 6 inches and up, most likely to accommodate the running gear of the time.
This version has all frames spaced at 18″ and the double stringers for twin V8 installation!
Builders may also scale down the plans to create a proportionally smaller craft, even down to model size, say 1:10.
Floors and cockpits are full defined as is the anchor well, rear sun lounge, transom and rear deck skid.
It’s a very seaworthy and proven hull for those looking to build a large offshore boat for friends and family. This iconic racing boat was originally designed by George Crouch in 1924 and went on to win the 1924 and 1925 APBA Gold Cup. It has been said that the 16 foot Gar Wood speedster is, pound for pound, the most valuable classic production speed boat in the world. There are some 15 frames, 2 keels, twin hatch assembly, vertical cleats, gas tank fixing, drivers bench seat, breast hook, front and rear stems with knees etc. No jig is supplied as the keel is set using two heights from the baseline so set-up is quite simple.
Rear lounge is made up of 3 sections allowing the center to come away for access to engine compartment. Very happy to have come across this treasure from the 50s, seems years ahead in its design and lines.


I prefer 1 plan per item leaving a general arrangement plan to explain heights above a base line and frame spacing’s.
Others have used 1 set for building  component frames and the used a second set for checking the final frame with. All print shops use Adobe as their main reading and printing software. We use  Kwikopy locally and clients in the US have use Kinkos nationwide. All plans come with a full set of PDF files (Adobe reader files) from the parts themselves to the general arrangement plan.
Frames include double gussets, seat risers, side battens, keel cut-outs and all other details as per original plans. I can’t see any advantage in trying to replicate the vessel historically as fittings and hardware if sourced would be overly priced and ill-fitting.
Additions include engine stringers (suited  to Merc 4.3) modified transom, rear lounge, bulkhead,engine cover and a sub floor to suit storage and add rigidity. Eight frames in total, engine blocks are provide but only suitable for Mercruiser spacings. Other than getting feet, inches and eighths of inches onto timber at full size, there really is too much information for a single plan. Most frustrating of all is the fact that so many offsets are wrong, these offsets where generally taken after the boat was built and it’s easy to see how they where either measured or copied down wrong.
Some builders have printed their own plans at home first at say 1:10 and built up a scaled model first. Directions for building are not included as we cannot afford the time to discuss or cover all possible building methods.


All individual parts are full size and labeled so there is no confusion as to which part you have.
These are turning out to be very detailed and involved plans but will be suited to amateurs and experienced builders. At 27 feet a single Mercruiser coupled to a Bravo II should be ample to launch and power this proven hull. A fairly basic version again suited to those looking for a similar project to the Donzi Sweet 16. Please email me with any queries you may have on any particular inboard set-up so I can establish suitability or make the modifications for you. We have been fortunate enough to have received a good set of plans that cover all details enabling us to replicate this little treasure.
Dimensions are stated in millimeters and will not be amended to suit inches and feet though fortunately most sizes do coincide with our favored imperial sizes.
This version is from the original sheet plans and a full size building jig is also included.
The first if these is currently underway in the States and I’ll be posting the build images as they become available.
