Euro 1480 Bi-Plane
The Euro 1480 Bi-Plane is a new custom design commissioned by a client wanting to think outside the box and utilise the bi-plane rig on a commercial vessel. The concept suits commercial work well due to it's simplicity and the outward situated masts mean that the interior bridgedeck space can be utilised more effectively.
The interior layout of the Euro 1480 Bi-Plane features a large main cabin with ensuite situated forward on the bridgedeck, with a walk-around galley behind leading out to a large cockpit with plenty of seating for guests. Two queen cabins are located down in each hull, with their own toilet and shower and a smaller berth forward.
This layout would suit skippered chartering with crew occupying one cabin and guests in the main cabin, or any desired combination. The bi-plane rig means easy sailing and sail handling with minimal sail controls cluttering the deck space.

Alaskan 52 Power Catamaran by Schionning Designs introduces the Alaskan 52 to have every quality you need for serious long distance live aboard cruising.
The "Trawler" catchword is used on any and every type of vessel trying to project to the buyer a Trawler's solid heavy-duty ability to handle the sea because of its working heritage. Usually they are heavy, slow and purpose designed with huge motors to pull trawl loads, and are not the boat to cruise in. This is like travelling in a semi-trailer instead of a motor home.
In this way we have designed the Alaskan 52 to have every quality you need for serious long distance live aboard cruising. We use the most modern light-weight materials; sophisticated engineering and reliable new advances in technology and equipment to produce this perfectly balanced Power Cat.
The Alaskan 52 pictured below was built by Serenity Shipyar

The Alaskan 41 Power Catamaran is sophisticated & stylish with accommodation. Easy entertaining to suit live aboard cruisers.
Alaskan 41 Power Catamaran is a seaworthy passage maker, the Alaskan runs on very economical hulls, giving her cruising speeds of 16-17kts, and a top speed of 24kts pushed by just two 125hp Yanmar turbo diesels housed in separate engine rooms.
With such small Horse Power and very economical hull shapes the Alaskan has the fuel consumption figures to embarrass even the most frugal of monohull designs. Cruising at 16-17kts fuel consumption is 1.3ltrs per Nautical mile giving the Alaskan a range of close to 1000 sea miles. Sophisticated and stylish with accommodation to suit live aboard cruisers and well set up for very easy entertaining, this design suits a wide range of applications and can literally go anywhere.
Available in kit form with many parts pre-cut and our very latest construction plans with loads of detail, she is suitable for amateur or professional builders.
Sea Shanty 1600
The Sea Shanty evolved as an idea of Jeff's to create a large stable cruising platform, able to carry enough of the cruising toys to make it a real home away from home. The huge cockpit and multiple cabins make the Shanty into a real palace on the water. Motorbikes or a small car could be loaded via the aft ramp, if desired.
- A world cruiser, she has a generous payload to afford luxury.
- Not all of the internal furniture is built in, household items may be used.
- Moderate cruising speeds from 9-12 knots up to 24 knots.
- Combination of strip planking and flat panel construction.
- Fantastic for those that wish to escape it all and explore the globe.
