    Spec mar has some close as does cope. I've worked on builds with both, cope was a bit more detailed but a custom design and the price was 3x a standard design so that may have skewed the perception.

    @jamesrww, welcome to the forum.
    If you do not find what you are looking for among the existing designs, which would be the cheapest/most advisable, and you need a custom design, I can help develop it. Send me, if you wish, a personal message to talk about it.

    You could perhaps ask the folk at Global Marine Design in Oz if they could design a small wheelhouse for this 16' boat kit?

    They also do kits for larger boats as well.

    Here is another small ally boat for which plans are available - she has a wheelhouse, but would 6.5 metres length be too big for you?
