Speed Boats

Speed boats are based on classic wood boat designs.

Plans are available for a variety of yesteryears beauties. Modern materials make for much lighter boats requiring less horsepower and much less maintenance than the original classics. With their light weight, they don’t take a lot of motor to get them moving, and easily pull skiers.

Typical Specifications:

  • Length: 14 feet, 4 inches
  • Beam: 5 feet, 9 inches
  • Hull weight (approx): 275 pounds
  • Motor: Up to 40 HP
  • Capacity: 4 people

  • Length: 16 feet
  • Beam: 6 feet, 7 inches
  • Hull weight (approx): 450 pounds
  • Motor: Up to 70 HP
  • Capacity: 5 people

I have to say, motor guys and others have been known to stop-in-their-tracks-and-stare with the boat. It hits holy-crap-wow status with everyone.  Good job.
