Kingston 15

The Kingston 15 demonstrates a safe, stable and compact pocket yacht design. With only seven inches of draft, the craft is easy to launch and retrieve. It has an overall trailer weight at about 1000-1500 lbs., which will allows it to be towed behind most any vehicle. The Kingston 15 is constructed of marine, exterior or MDO plywood using tack and tape method. The design theme remains a single constant ... simplicity. Overall the Kingston 15 offers many features commonly found in boats of much larger displacement. The cockpit provides ample cruising seating for four, or lounging room for two. The cockpit also features under seat storage lockers and are incorporated into the seat backs. Compared to most 15' pocket cruiser designs the Kingston 15 features an ample cockpit for day sailing for 4 and a cabin with sitting headroom and sleeping accommodations for 2. This design makes the Kingston 15 a perfect overall weekender design. Plans sell for $90.00.
