26' Saltee Island Plans
This is a rugged steel workboat/fishing boat for coastal and offshore use. She has a large cockpit and enclosed wheelhouse with space below for a simple wc and/or galley.
The steel hull panel shapes are given so that the hull can be constructed either by tacking the plates together over wood moulds and then fitting the framework or by assembling the full framework first and fitting the panels over the top. Note - for a wood version of the Saltee Island, see the next design below.
The hull has a double chine U/V bottomed shape giving an easy riding displacement hull that can be fitted out in a number of different ways.
