This aluminum boat design (plan) is for a 42 X 12 FT wide door landing craft with cabin.
At 19,500 pounds displacement, with twin Volvo D4 225 HP Diesel Motors and DPH out drive, achieved 25 knots (29 mph) top speed with a cruising speed around 20 knots (23 mph). Below is text written by the boat owner.
It is a great boat. It will be used for hauling passenger vehicles, freight, and people around Cook Inlet and Homer Alaska. It has a full galley, four bunks and a head and shower, 400 gallons fuel, 150 gallons fresh water, 11 gallon hot water heater off the heat exchanger on the port main, cabin heater off the starboard main,15 gallon hydraulic pump off the starboard main, hydraulic bow door winch, hydraulic capstan winch used to pull anchors and with davit, and a 3000 pound hydraulic maxi lift deck crane which I will be mounting in the next few weeks... Last year we had top speed of about 25 knots and cruise at 18 to 20 … Thanks again will make a great live-aboard freight hauler.
