Below is a short sampling of yachts and small craft designs by Rick Etsell:
Abyssinia -- 65' Excursion Yacht
-- a go-anywhere, heavy duty cargo ship/yacht.
Originally designed as a commercial party boat/charter yacht, this design is a nod to the classic fantail yachts of the 20's, but with modern USCG certified systems. Her "bustle" stern enables her to achieve speeds up to 15 knots. Variations on this hull can be done to suit, and would make a gorgeous fantail yacht harkening back to the golden age of motoryachts, with a fraction of the upkeep and maintenance necessary.
A heavy duty go-anywhere yacht in steel.
A full displacement coastal cruiser in the tradition of the great Pacific Northwest classic motor yachts.
48' Aluminum Trawler
Nahani Trader was built as a yacht/pocket processor, with capabilities for heading and gutting fish, flash freezing, and frozen storage.
40' Fast Trawler --
A production boat design for Soundcraft Marine.
16' Aluminum Utility Launch
With a small inboard diesel, she's a great yard boat, tug, tender, or picnic boat.
