Design 882 - Florita

Here's one of those little gems we come across from time to time in the files. She is a 26.5' powerboat that was built of wood by the Essex Boat Works, of Essex Connecticut and launched in 1950.

She is built of white oak for structural members and planked in mahogany. Power is from a single Chrysler 100 hp gas engine for a top speed of 13.5 knots at 2,000 rpm.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 26'-6"
LWL 25'-0"
Beam 8'-7"
Draft 2'-4"
Displacement 4,915 lbs
