Waverunner 25 .... (Steel or Aluminum)

There are drawings on this page, please read the following while they load:

This design has been especially designed for steel construction and special care has been taken to provide for adequate displacement to build in this material. This vessel has been designed for frameless construction, the stiffness being provided by the careful placement of the bulkheads.

We feel that this hull will offer speeds in the high end of the displacement scale provided the builder follows the methods described in the boat plans. The hull lines were drawn on specially designed software that enables us to offer fully developed Full Size Frame Patterns. The plating will literally "drape" over this framework resulting in no difficult plate forming.
