15' Trican Motor Canoe Plans

Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


The client who asked for this design, Jim Ferguson (who has sadly now passed on), wanted a design that could be used in a number of ways - a true multi-role craft for use in Australian waters. The main hull can be used by itself as a simple motor canoe or as a Proa with just one float or as a trimaran with 2 floats. With just the main hull she is a stable motor canoe for use in estuaries etc but with the floats she will become a very stable platform for all sorts of uses including coastal fishing and diving etc.

The plans show construction both in sheet aluminium and stitch and tape plywood - the beams are aluminium poles.
