Mark Van Abbema has been working on a smaller, trailerable successor for his V39 for a while… Named the V 28, its getting close. He states that plans should be available by the end of January.

LOA 28′
Beam 7′ 6″
Draft 14″
Disp 4,000 lb

Mark’s gone to a V bottom design to help with the pounding that he experienced with the flat-bottomed V39.

Powered by a 10 hp outboard he’s expecting 6 knot cruise and 15 knots with 50 hp.

Looks like a nice layout and design in an (relatively) easy to build craft.
