42' Trawler - Design 981

Here is a 42' wooden trawler named Hood III, which was built by J.J. Taylor & Sons, Ltd. of Toronto, Canada in 1951. She is constructed of wood and powered by a single GM diesel engine.

Here are the plans.

And a couple of interior images.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 42'-2"
LWL 39'-0"
Beam 13'-0"
Draft 4'-5"
Displacement 37,065 lbs


  1. Nice! I have films of the launch and original use of that boat. I own a 1948 J.J. Taylor and am interested in any documentation of boats built by the yard. If you are interested in the films please reply here.

  2. Thanks for checking in. Sure we would love to see the films or if you have them posted on UTube we can add a link.

  3. I too owned a 'Taylor Craft' cruiser for 13 summers, sold her in her 51st year back to the guy I bought her from. Taylor was Canada's leading boat builder of the day and I would not be surprised if Hood III is still in use today.
