Here’s a link to this wonderful article featuring Devlin Boat’s latest build, the Kingfisher 33, and on Sam’s lifelong quest to design the perfect boat.http://www.devlinboat.com/devlin-kingfisher/Share This:
Sam has been paying close attention to the current fascination with tiny homes. He even made preliminary sketches for Devlin marine plywood and epoxy small footprint dwellings. The next thing we all knew he had created an easily towable tiny home on the water and wonderful travel trailer on the road he chose to name the MugWump 21. Check out this little gem in the August issue of Soundings. http://www.devlinboat.com/?attachment_id=4438Share This:
Update: Small Boats Monthly is releasing their review of the Pelicano 20! It goes online at noon today! June 1.
The oft-requested Pelicano 20 is coming in every possible way. Study plans are available now on our store.
Full construction plans and a CNC- cut kits are due on June 16th. The kit will sell for $6999 and solves the problem of all those accurate curved cuts on the hull construction. The plans will list for $325 and will enable you to build your own unique version of this beautiful, versatile boat. Finally, our Pelicano 20 catalog page is here. It contains the specifications so you can go out and measure your garage. It’ll fit!
Sam has been writing a series of articles for Soundings magazine. Collectively, they are entitled “Sketchbook” and he spends time writing about the designs he has dreamed up – in many cases highly developed plans are drawn – but for numerous reasons, these designs remain on the drawing board. They could be summed as the peak of a 40 year career in boat design, but I’d bet Sam wouldn’t give himself that much credit.
The latest article just appeared in the June 12 issue. It reveals Sam’s work on a 62-foot version of his venerable Sockeye design. It’s a true long-range cruiser drawn on the lines of oceangoing trawlers of decades past, but bringing all the advantages of his stitch-and-glue technology along for the ride.
As with all things Sam Devlin, and with the sheer amount of space on offer, the Sockeye 62 can be fitted out in any number of ways to meet your dreams of a boat that will literally take you anywhere on the water in supreme comfort and yes, style.
