16' Gentleman's Runabout profile

A low-power, moderate-speed inboard runabout for protected waters.

Designed for sawn frames and batten-seam planking.

Construction: Battened-seam planking over sawn frames.

Lofting required.

Plans include 5 sheets.

Please note: the Westerbeke 26G engine spec’d in the plans is no longer manufactured.

Alternatives are to select a similar size from a salvage yard, or with a light weight Yanmar diesel.

You might even try biodiesel for fuel, to save your olfactories.

We understand that the 26G means 26 horsepower gas engine that weighed about 350 lbs with the transmission.
