11’8″ Lawton Yacht Tender


  This is a design from John Gardner’s Book, “Building Classic Small Craft”. It is a very classy, traditional design and oridinally intended to serve a much bigger yacht. Each plank overlaps the previous plank, and the seams are epoxied together resulting in a very strong, watertight joint. Because of the high strength of the epoxy adhesive, the entire hull is effectively one piece, producing a strong, lightweight boat (think of an eggshell) that does not need the internal frames of a traditional lapstrake boat. The interior is clean and uncluttered. Note the small details: the trailer boards, the breasthook, the oarlocks and the scalloped rear seat.

   The planking is made from 1/4″ okoume marine plywood and the gunwales, stem and transom are made from sepele mahogany. Comes with 1 pair of oars.

Length: 11’8”       Beam: 47”         Weight: 70 lbs.
