A full displacement coastal cruiser in the tradition of the great Pacific Northwest classic motor yachts. Building Plans contain all the information actually needed to complete construction of the vessel. Drifter 36  - A tunnel-hull fiberglass house boat designed for permanent living aboard.

General Comments: The traditional Passagemaker Lite arrangement of flush raised deck and sunken pilot house with bridge behind is still workable at 39’ LOA. CAD drawings of general construction, construction sections, tanks, deckhouse, profile and arrangement, shaft and rudder plan. There is nothing new to the idea of thin, light, seaworthy, and fast powerboats, and Tad Roberts has been inspired by several of those of the past. Passagemaker Lite design series is Tad Roberts' modern, lightweight, fuel-efficient re-statement of the fast, seaworthy, long-range power cruiser. The PL 39 was created at the request of a client for something more modest than my larger PL 46 and 56.
In these boats the fuel load is the largest single weight and the entire design revolves around the amidships placement of that. I choose the raised deck for a number of reasons; strength, simple construction, maximum interior volume, and a high angle of vanishing stability.
In my opinion the strongest, stiffest, and fastest (least man hours) construction method for these boats is sheathed strips over NC cut plywood or particle board molds.
The remainder of the boat would stay the same except I would add more ventilators and raise hatches off the deck surface for better ventilation and keeping water out.
Paul Mooney, President of FairMetal Boats, is serious about providing the highest quality metal cruising yachts possible to his customers.
Mooney concluded that the designs of Denis Ganley, from New Zealand, represent the best in performance and functional design for steel yachts. During his research overseas, where a significantly higher number of metal boats are built, compared to the estimated two to three percent market share of metal boats in the United States, Mooney focused his attention on some of the welding practices of metal boat builders. Mooney himself has performed a great deal of welding with spool guns with his previous metal boat business, Mooney Marine, which built metal yachts from 1976 to 1985.
Once it was determined what method of welding and wire feeding would best provide the quality Mooney demands his company provides to customers, he went on the search for a power source. With these requirements, Mooney began his search for a welder that would perform to his exacting specifications. Built-in Undercarriage & Cylinder Bracket “All the dealings I have had with Lincoln Electric and its personnel on this project have been fair and knowledgeable. Armao is an application engineer at Lincoln headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio, and is considered one of the country's pre-eminent experts on aluminum welding, with experience at Alcoa® Aluminum operations.


Mooney conducted significant experimentation with the settings of the Power MIG 300 and has concluded that the patented Pulse-on-Pulse™ mode, part of Lincoln’s Nextweld Technologies, included on the unit, provides arc welding advantages on this aluminum project.
To that end, FairMetal purchased a Power MIG 300 and Python push-pull gun with a 50-foot feed conduit in 2003 from Metro Welding Supplies in Detroit. Another advantage to using push-pull feeding is that FairMetal can purchase 16-pound spools instead of 1-pound spools used on spool guns, for a significant cost savings in consumable expenses on a per pound basis – and saving change-out time. The push-pull system allows him to have a 50-foot gun cable, a preference in FairMetal’s boat construction.
Mooney has had other metal boat welders visit his facility and observe FairMetal’s welding operations. Currently, Mooney and Boettcher are beginning work on a 32-foot trawler that they plan to market to the public. Her "bustle" stern enables her to achieve speeds up to 15 knots.  Variations on this hull can be done to suit, and would make a gorgeous fantail yacht harkening back to the golden age of motoryachts, with a fraction of the upkeep and maintenance necessary.
A boat that will top out at a very respectable 12 knots and be able to cruise for almost a week at 9 knots. To Roberts, these boats brought to mind a glaring question: Why didn't the whole world flock to these sensible and efficient pleasure powerboat designs? There are now two series, the orginal traditional one and a modern one, in lengths from 39' to 98'. So the layout stemmed from the fuel tank placement under the pilothouse with main engine aft of the tanks in the galley area.
Before Mooney even contemplated fabricating a metal yacht with his new company, he spent two years researching metal boat designs, the market and the state-of-the-art in metal boat construction. He chose the Strongall aluminum building method, developed by Meta of France, because it offered the best aluminum designs and construction method.
By teaming with The Lincoln Electric Company and its Nextweld® Technologies, Mooney found the perfect unit for aluminum boat construction. The predominant MIG wire feeding method for aluminum in Europe is the push-pull method rather than spool gun.
Through his experience, Mooney finds the push-pull method more convenient and flexible for yacht work. When it came to the excellence in assembly methods and “highest quality in metal work” FairMetal Boats refers to in its mission statement, Mooney found its partner in The Lincoln Electric Company.
Local sales representative, Todd Stoughton, was able to clearly articulate the advantages of the Power MIG 300 over the competition’s machines, provided brief training and assisted with set up. With Lincoln’s Waveform Control Technology™, heat input can be controlled to a greater degree, minimizing the potential for warping. This welding setup was purchased specifically to work on FairMetal’s first aluminum hull boat project – a 22.5-foot tugboat Mooney designed based on the Strongall method.
Other than storage compartment hatches installed by FairMetal, the customer will complete outfitting the boat including portholes, galley, bunks, special-ordered composting toilet for the head, and other amenities.


The hull is computer designed to create pleasing curves when the plates are pulled around the minimal frame.
This allows the power source to remain stationary, conveniently and safely out of the way of the construction area. Their comments have been that there is substantially less rework on this FairMetal aluminum boat project compared to other metal boat building operations they have experienced. He answered that question by identifying the elements that limited the type, and, in his Lite designs, addressed them. This quest would take him to both coasts of North America, Holland, France and New Zealand, all before he ever put an arc to metal. He even demonstrated the machine and established credibility prior to guaranteeing the 50-foot Python gun,” Mooney said. He was also impressed with the built-in waveform programs capable of welding a variety of alloys. This boat will be used for water quality analysis testing by the not-for-profit Watershed Conservation Group in Grand Traverse Bay, Michigan. From a welding standpoint, it allows Mooney to use larger diameter wire, and put down larger welds. FairMetal’s design philosophy is to utilize thick plate to minimize framing structure and therefore reduce labor. In doing so, this process requires hundreds upon hundreds of feet of fillet welds with all seams being welded inside and out.
In Mooney's opinion, thicker material and larger welds will lead to greater weld integrity. The head designer Vassilis Kostoulas is a Naval Architect and Marine Engineer with an over 20 years experience in boat building. We offer to our customers a variety of in house developed yacht designs to choose from, custom design solutions and we build their favourite design. We perform all naval architecture studies including stability and floatation calculations, structural analysis, CFD analysis and we can arrange tank testing. We produce the building kit of the construction that contains all the elements to be cut by CNC machines. These elements are then assembled to a state of the art aluminum hull by our associate yard. The construction is then approved by the classification authority that the customer has chosen.The interior and the choice of the equipment is custom made according to customers specific ideas and wishes.
The construction of the interior and the installation of the equipment is done by our second associate, a yacht interior specialist.
