30′ Aluminum Passenger/Cargo Vessel

The brief for this project was to supply a vessel suitable for passenger use but which could also carry up to two tons of cargo when necessary and with seating removed. Again we looked to Specmar Design for a suitable plan and CNC kitset.

Power needed to be big enough to push the boat along at reasonable speed when fully loaded and to enable high speed when running as a passenger service. Selected engine was Yanmar 6LPAM-STZP2 which has a rating of 315 HP @ 3,800 rpm. Drive fitted is the Mercruiser Bravo II-X sterndrive unit.

The cabin is built using epoxy/foam sandwich in order to keep boat weight down and forĀ aestheticĀ reasons ie. nice rounded corners and better styling than can be attained easily using aluminum.
