Originally designed for WoodenBoat Magazine’s Design Competition II, Puget Sound Cruiser is an efficient, rugged, comfortable cruiser that can sleep two comfortably, or four in a pinch. This boat has enough carrying capacity to bring along some food, gear, and light fishing equipment while providing a stove to cook on, and plenty of deck space for all those outdoor boating activities.  Placing the steering station allows the boat to operate in all weather conditions.  In many parts of the world, this boat could be run in all seasons.

 

The modern hull is strip planked with a light layer of fiberglass on the outside for durability, making a light strong boat.  Generous internal framing adds to the strength and longevity of the boat.  This hull uses a moderate V towards the stern to promote early planing and high efficiency while the bow uses a much deeper V to provide a comfortable ride.  The hull is well flared all around, so the boat should stay nice and dry.

 

To achieve high efficiency, power comes from a high-speed diesel driving a stern drive.  A gasoline stern drive could be used for better performance, and less efficiency.  Outboards would be a less expensive alternative.  While a jet drive could work on this boat, the plans are not drawn to incorporate one.

 

Warning: Due to my current circumstances, I only offer support for designs sold before 8/16/2014.  The price of the plans has been drastically reduced to represent this.  Paper plans are no longer offered.  All plans are sold in pdf format to download.  After purchasing plans, a download link will be provided within 24hrs.
