Pelicano 20

With the Pelicano 20, Sam has pulled his usual trick of combining a lot of usability into a very convenient and lovely boat-shaped package. It started as a custom build, which resulted in the Adeline. You can read the customer’s experiences with his Pelicano 20 here.

The Pelicano Bassboat is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to maximize usability in a 20′-2″cruiser. It’s a traditional speedboat, a fishing boat, and versatile explorer for weekends on the water. The design has a spacious cabin forward, with enough space for a v-berth for the occasional camping weekend.  The design has ample dry storage below.

Like all Pelicanos, the maximum HP is 115, and you can realistically expect over 40mph with that kind of power.

At 20′-2″, it not hard to find a garage that will store the Pelicano for the winter, which gives owners more options and saves money.

And finally, the Pelicano is an easily trailerable design, adding to its basic versatility, and helping you to find your own boating adventures.

The Pelicano 20 is currently available as study plans. The full construction plans and a CNC cut hull kit will be available in mid-June 2017.

Wild Washingtonian Storms Maine Boatbuilders Show

Sam Devlin spent the weekend in Portland. I’m sure that many positive things happened while he was there. After all, the photo above shows us a picture of a peaceful boat builder in front of the beautiful Adeline, the first build of the Pelicano 20. However, evidence suports a theory that not all is quiet back East. Turns out, there is a political controversy over the venue, and Sam found himself on the news, right in middle of the fight. The phrase, “Can’t take this guy anywhere,” comes to mind.

The Adventures of Adeline

Adeline Sea TrialsHi, folks. ‘Adeline’ is a Pelicano 20, a custom designed version of the Pelicano Bass Boat that Sam and crew built for Henry Clews and Nancy Chandler in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. I spoke to Henry a few days ago, and he graciously agreed to write up his experiences with Adeline. He did such an excellent job that I’ll just hand it over to Henry…
