Design 2336 - 48' Canal Boat


Here is a preliminary design for a canal cruiser with 48'-3" length overall for Irving Johnson, drawn in 1978. Remember, Irving Johnson owned Yankee (design #1278), and is very well documented as having cruised the canals of Europe extensively aboard her. See my posting of August 27, 2010 regarding Yankee by clicking here.

He probably got tired of stepping and unstepping the masts and you obviously can't sail the boat in the canals, so got the motorboat bug. Nothing became of this design beyond what you see here. You can find the principal dimensions on the right side of the plan (double click on the plan itself for zoom). Not a bad looking boat. Overall height as shown on the plan was limited by bridge clearance.
