Egret

The first Devlin design, the Egret is a proven 15′ 3″ open sail-and-oar adventurer. Easily singlehanded, she is stiff, stable, and comfortable in a breeze. A little too much breeze? She’s also easily rowed, or for those of us who dislike excessively mixing labor and leisure, she can be built with a motor well.

Candlefish 13

The Candlefish 13 is a versatile small fishing boat. Originally designed to be a cartoppable fishing skiff for high latitude rivers and lakes, she has also proven to be an excellent yacht tender.

With one person aboard, she only draws about 4.5 inches. On an ultimate hunting trip, loaded with gear, she could carry 1323 pounds, draw 10.5 inches  and still have over 13 inches of freeboard at the lowest point of the sheer.

Under normal loading, she planes at 20+mph with an 8hp outboard. Sam recently built one of these as a tender for his beloved Josephine, and reports that he loves it.
