27' Marlow Electric/Steam Launch
We used the Edwardian 26 as a basis for this launch. We were asked to change the stern shape to a rather handsome counter and add more beam, but not too much, just enough to give her a more comfortable interior without taking away from her sleek lines.
Construction is for strip plank over computer faired mould shapes. The layout has a saloon with 2 sette/berths, gally and wc compartment and a large forward cockpit.
The drawings show an Aquapella electric motor but she could also be powered by diesel or steam.
