    I want to build a boat with the open cockpit and cabin in the bow. All with still having the mahogany runabout style and look.

    Does anyone know where I can get plans for a boat like this?

    28 to 30 ft

    You should be aware that building such a boat is no small feat. Also be aware that the cost of a project of that magnitude is a lot more than chump change. At least four zeros worth of dollars and maybe pushing the five zero mark for a boat of that size and sophistication.

    Welcome to the forum.

    You'll likely need more length if you want a runabout look, yet also a functional cabin. The boat you've pictured is about 28' and there's just not enough freeboard for a cabin, though a very low storage area is located where you'd want one. This seems unique enough to require a custom design, as I don't know of any stock runabout design, that would fit the requirement.

    We are Azurspeed Design Group ,The Netherlands and sole copyright holder of the design ,known as Azurspeed 80.
    Ones build as single one-off by Walth Boats,hence its name Walth 800.
    All later lookalikes are basically far cry from our initial basic design.

    We made the design in 8 meters and 12 meter available for build , as such the designs can be negotiated in several layouts according to owners wishes.

    kind regards Sven Stevens ,Chief Designer ,Azurspeed.com
