Yacht Designs

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.  

65' Fantail 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.


60' Explorer Yacht --

A heavy duty go-anywhere yacht in steel.






Pacific Motor Boat 48

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.
