Our second generation stitch and glue is the ideal material for a light and fast sport boat. The 5 panel hull shape is easy to build.It has less wet area than a sharpie hull but still has the flat bottom ideal for good downwind performance and planing.
The preferred keel is the vertical drop keel with a 400 lb bulb on the end of the high aspect foil. While this a Mertens-Goossens design, credit must be given to Evan Gatehouse for his collaboration.
The plans show an integral outboard bracket for a motor of 2 to 4 HP, 20" or longer shaft.. Consult the designer for a super light version using honeycomb for most parts except the hull.
The plywood cored epoxy-fiberglass composite panels are stronger and stiffer than a plain fiberglass skin and the construction of such a boat is within the reach of any amateur builder.


We show specifications and part numbers for all parts but this an area where experts sailors will customize their boat. It can be replaced by a smaller, lighter structural platform to support the keel trunk and a stringer all around. This is not a boat for a first time sailor and builders will use our sail plan and deck plans as a starting point that they can adapt to their preferences. This water ready 18' bowrider has a V-6 Mercruiser 4.3L 220hp motor that gives you power for skiing or wake boarding, but easy on the gas. While the CB keel will not deliver the same performance than the fin keel, it is good solution for those who must adjust draft as they sail. Gelcoat and upholstery are in superb condition.Engine is super clean and has only 117 hours of use. Bow and cockpit covers, built-in ice chest in dash, cushions to make the bow a sun deck, bimini top and trailer.


While this is far from the comfort of a cruising boat, there sufficient space to sleep two. Compare this boat to any Sea Ray, Monterey, Four Winns, Rinker, Glastron, Wellcraft, Larson, Chris Craft, Bayliner, Stingray or Regal bowrider.
