Surf Scoter 26

SurfScoter26Beauty1 The Surf Scoter has been produced in 22, 25 and 26 foot versions.

The latest in our offerings in the Pilothouse cruiser series is the Surf Scoter. Although sharing a heritage with her smaller pilothouse sisters, this boat has a lot of features that should make sense for cruisers all around the country.

This is a full-sized boat with full-sized features, and a pilothouse with 6′ 4″ headroom. The pilothouse area has a fully enclosed head, galley with sink, cook top range and cabin heater. The helm area has plenty of room for electronics above the dash and opposite the port side is the co-helm and passenger seats.

Forward under the raised flush deck is a U-shaped berthing area with good sitting headroom and a table. The table can be lowered to convert this area into a very large double berth area or it can be used as port and starboard single births.

SurfScoter26TrailerOut in the cockpit and through the sliding companion door is a large area for fishing and other activities. There are seats on each side of the engine box and a self-bailing floor.

For power, we’ve used the Volvo Penta 22 series diesel stern drives. With the 105-hp model, the Surf Scoter will top speed out at 24 knots and, throttling back a bit, she will cruise economically at 18 knots.

The Surf Scoter 26 is available as study and construction plans.

Surf Scoter 22

It hSurfScoter22Harboras been over 20 years now since we first conceived of and built the first of our venerable Surf Scoter 22 vessels and it was high time that we sat down to the drafting table, put the thinking cap on, and re-think and re-conceive the design. Many things have changed over the years and in todays world it’s almost impossible to buy a 2 stroke outboard engine. The 4 cycle outboards have taken over the market and brief forays into small diesel inboards and larger diesel Stern drives have all come and gone. SurfScoter22HelmWhat makes the most sense in todays market, with the cost of everything boat related in the far stratosphere price-wise, is to use the wonderfully quiet, smooth running, and efficient 4 cycle outboards that are so readily available these days. Mounting them on the transom makes the most sense and this gives a cockpit that has the space to accommodate everything in use from the fisherman to the long distance cruiser.

SurfScoter22ForeaftIn addition to updating our traditional Pilothouse model, we have produced a cruiser model with a stretched Pilothouse with a neat enclosed head so that those skippers amongst us that desire our first mates to come along on our cruising adventures will be equipped to keep them comfortable and agreeable! There is still plenty of room for a galley, helm and co-helm seats in the pilothouse with 6-4 headroom. Under the foredeck, you’ll find sitting headroom in the port and starboard berths and with a filler plugged into the middle, a huge double berth can be made up.

This new model is quite a bit wider than the older version and the resulting stability will be appreciated by all. With a 90 hp outboard on the stern, the top speed is 26mph and a cruising speed of 18 mph is quiet and economical with a fuel burn of less than 4 gph at speed.

The plans are complete for both professional and home builders and we offer them in both measurement formats – American and for our International customers, Metric. We are very pleased to have had the chance to revisit this old concept, throw a couple of new ideas at it and we hope that you will love the result as much as we do! — Sam Devlin

Dunlin 22

The Devlin Dunlin 22 began as a larger version of the pocket workhorse Godzilli 16. After Sam was finished, he expanded the boat into two configurations, both of which can provide you with all the work and play you could want in a boat this size. With a 60hp high thrust outboard and a very strong structure, the Dunlin can be used for a wide range of pursuits. With a cabin designed for plenty of headroom, a heating stove, a double berth, stowaway space for a port-potti, and a galley counter, it can also serve as a comfortable place to relax after the work is done. For the details and thought that went into this versatile workhorse, check out Sam’s design notes.
