Item Description

Complete set of working plans for BOWLER, a 26' 6" day boat or weekend cruiser, designed by Doug Hylan & Associates Boatbuilders, in Brooklin, Maine. This "cruising" version of Doug's TOP HAT launch is handsome, sea kindly, efficient and attractive to the home builder.

BOWLER uses modern glued wood construction. Her bottom is plywood and her curvacious topsides are strip planked. All is sheathed in Dynel/epoxy for a boat that stays good looking with less maintenance. Her fine bow will handle a chop with ease, and her semi-displacement hull can be driven up to 17 knots with just 60 horsepower.

Down below is a generous vee berth, followed by a toilet to starboard and a sink & counter to port. A step up brings you to the shelter, with 6′ 3” of headroom. The helm station is to starboard and to port is a “co-pilot” seat with storage under. A luxurious settee extends across the aft end of the cockpit just forward of the motor well. Lots of storage back here as well.

Study plans are on display at the library, or view them on the website of D.N. Hylan & Associates Boatbuilders. Just click the logo at the bottom of this page.

Item Special Note

Shipping charge $15, or you may pick it up at the library before Feb. 20.
