Skellig 18 Plans
The Skellig 18 is based on our Skellig 26 workboat/fishing boat. She has a double chined V bottom shape with generous beam making her a very stable working platform for all kinds of duties. The hull, with it's high volume and weight carrying capacity would also make an excellent base for a pleasure boat outfit.
Although details are given for an inboard diesel installation, she could easily take an outboard on the transom or in a well. Construction is ply plank over frame with the frames, bow girder and transom set up on a strongback, chine and hog stringers added and bevelled before fitting the ply planking oversize and trimming back.
The cockpit height can be altered but as shown is self draining. There is plenty of stowage and locker space.
