15' Lobster Boat PlansThis motorboat is based on a typical Maine Lobster boat and has been designed for strip plank construction (although she could be built using clinker/ply techniques using the same moulds). The hull has a high freeboard with flat planing sections aft and tumblehome worked into the hull aft.
She is essentially an open boat with a narrow side decking and bench seating with stowage under, however, she could be fitted out in a number of ways and could take a small cuddy/fore cabin.
The plans now also include details for an alternative layout with foredeck.
