Pelicano 23

Like the Pelicano 18, the larger Pelicano 23 comes in three distinct configurations. Bassboat, Center Console, and Shrimper.


In every case, the Pelicano 23 offers the unique combination of real world durability mixed with the classic Devlin style. Every configuration presents a very practical boat for a wide range of needs. The Bassboat and Shrimper both feature good berth space for overnight adventures; the shrimper adds a sheltered helm for operating in harsher conditions. There is ample dry storage below the deck. The Center Console version provides open space for wrestling those big fish and hauling bulky gear.

No matter your needs in a mid-sized speedboat, the Pelicano 23 delivers a strong, durable, and versatile answer.

For more information, read Sam’s design notes.

The Pelicano 23 is available in study and construction plans for all configurations,

and as a CNC cut kit for the Shrimper.

  1. Hello Mr. Devlin,
    I’m a long time admirer of your designs, especially the Pelicano. My questions are:
    Do the study plans show dead rise at transom and entry?
    Is it possible to stretch it closer to 25′ without increasing beam?

    • Hi Jon: No the study plans do not show the deadrise. The stern is 12 degrees and the bow is much more of an angle, we use a tapering deadrise, sharpest at the bow tapering to the 12 degrees aft.
