Shetland 14 Workboat PlansThis sturdy craft has been designed for a client in Scotland who wanted a rugged general purpose boat for fishing and diving in rough water. She may only be 14â long, but she is for all that, a large boat and she incorporates both integral buoyancy tanks and a water ballast tank. There is plenty of seating plus an outboard well and she may be fitted out with an inboard engine. The standard construction plans have all the hull panel and frame shapes for steel construction but she can of course, be made from plywood using stitch and epoxy methods.
Note, drawings specifically for plywood construction have recently been added to the plan set.
