    This one is just a shell, design obviously not finished:

    It's a simple hull design for a 31 foot double-ended displacement power boat ... a beachable shuttle boat or small ferry for use directly from the local beaches and between the islands.


    With modification I'm sure it would become a very comfortable cruiser, and its Seabright skiff heritage should make it a very seaworthy boat as well.

    31 feet in length
    9 feet 6 inches beam

    Waterlines shown:
    12 inches at 4600 pounds displacement
    18 inches at 8000 pounds displacement

    I used the Seabright skiff bottom for safety when running through the surf and for sitting stable and upright when landed. I also made it an easy beach-loading craft via its unusual bow transom which opens downward to become a loading ramp, while the stern transom will have a safety re-boarding ladder on it.

    This is a 34 ft concept that never came about in the end. It got a lot further through preliminary design, than this so I do have more information at hand.

    I don't think its what you are looking for, but hey you asked.....

    Hi Mason,
    I am curious to know what the term relay boat means.

    You might want to check out the Calkins design, of the Bartender, double-end Surf Dory. While they are light weight in wood, Aluminum ones have been built, for C.G. and some Oil companies.
    I'm thinking of building a 34 footer, sport-cruiser myself, but I'm just in the planning stages, to determine hull materials, of either wood, alum., or steel.

    Consider building uses my method of construction I have developed over 30 years. The interior is built first inside a steel skeleton. I saved 3000 man hours building my 12m, yacht. Good luck from down under. Peter Bourne.
