L.O.A
36'1"
L.W.L
34'7"
BEAM
8'8"
DRAFT
8"/12" (version 2)
DISPLACEMENT
5,500lbs/6,000lbs (version 2)
TYPE
Single-chine plywood power sharpie; inboard, I/O or four-cycle-outboard-powered cruising yacht. Two hull options. Originally intended for the Florida Keys flats, with trips to Cuba and the Bahamas during calm weather. This is also an excellent sportfisherman.
CONSTRUCTION
Cold-molded plywood / epoxy covered with epoxy-impregnated polyester cloth. Bottom two layers 1/2"; sides one layer 1/2"; decks foam-core/ply sandwich; self-draining cockpit & lockers.
PLANS
Full construction plans are $650, which include THE SHARPIE BOOK, construction notes and construction details. The hull is built around her bulkheads, greatly simplifying lofting and construction. There are two hull options--the original extreme shoal draft, and a new deeper deadrise hull for rougher water.
CAPACITIES
Fuel: 110gal. (aluminum tank centered). Water: 60 gal. (p&s in bladder tanks). Cruising speed is 12 to 20 knots. The prototype "Magic" cruises at 19 miles per hour, consuming 4 gallons per hour with a Honda 90, and runs wide open at 24mph.
OPTIONS
This vessel may also be built with an inboard engine (75 to 100 HP). Recommended outboard power is 75 to 90HP (4-cycle Honda). Twin 36 HP Yanmar diesel outboards could be employed using a different stern configuration. It should be born in mind that standing headroom is limited to 6' in the cabin (as designed), and cannot be increased more than 1". Weight must be minimized.

NOTE
This design is intended to be extremely fuel-efficient and environment friendly. The hull displacement distribution is based on engine weight and power limited to the Honda 90, or twin 50's for hull version 2. These factors, along with velocities described, should not be exceeded.
