TYPE

Single-chine cold-molded plywood powerboat; twin-screw diesel inboard cruising yacht. This vessel is moderately offshore capable, with trips to Cuba, the Bahamas and beyond practical during settled weather.

CONSTRUCTION
Cold-molded plywood / epoxy covered with epoxy-impregnated polyester cloth. Bottom two layers 5/8"; sides one layer 5/8"; decks foam-core/ply sandwich; self-draining cockpit & lockers.
PLANS
Full construction plans are $850, which include THE SHARPIE BOOK, construction notes and construction details. The hull is built around her bulkheads, greatly simplifying lofting and construction. 
CAPACITIES
Fuel: 135gal. (aluminum tank centered). Water:90 gal. (p&s in bladder tanks). Cruising speed is 12 to 24 knots.
POWER Twin Yanmar 4JH4HTE with KM4A2 7-degree down-angle transmissions
OPTIONS
This vessel may also be powered with naturally-aspirated diesels (Yanmar 4JH4s) or stage one turbo diesels (Yanmar 4JH4HE). Fuel economy will be increased at the expense of power and top speed. Different interiors can be designed on a custom basis. Bear in mind that standing headroom is limited to 6’ 2” in the cabin and pilothouse (as originally designed), and should not be increased more than 1”.
DESIGN
 Reuel Parker
NOTE
This design is intended to be fuel-efficient and environment friendly. The hull displacement distribution is based on engine weight and power limited to the twin diesels noted above.
