From time to time I think about getting a motor boat, a handy little craft for getting out and back quickly, something on a trailer that can be dropped into the water easily.

It doesn't have to be a now ubiquitous inflatable RIB, as this elegant little boat shows. Flaring topsides which should keep the spray down and a hull form which will work at slow speeds as well as fast.

A simple but elegant fit out, including those lovely decks and plenty of room for the picnic basket and wine cooler, fishing tackle, buckets and spades.....


  1. Barton skiff?

    You could add all the gingerbread you want!

  2. The Lumber yard Skiff has the merit of an extremely fast build. Walt Baron sells the plans for $50.
