Sockeye 45

Sockeye45CoverThe Sockeye 45 is a full displacement type boat with an almost workboat type appearance. It has enough room inside to be comfortable with two couples. Its draft is modest enough to allow it to cruise in almost any waters you might encounter on the West or the East Coasts.

The profile is straight West Coast Tug type yacht with a heavy portion of fishboat thrown in. With twin masts in a Ketch configuration, this boat would allow a variety of deck boats to be handled on and off the deck.

Sockeye45SamThe Sockeye 45 is powered by a single 145 HP John Deere marine engine is recommended. This engine weighs in at 1,500 pounds and runs at a top speed of 2,400 rpm. The hull itself features a fantail configuration and is very seakindly in the full displacement range of performance. Top speed is 9 knots and cruising speed of 8 knots at about 3 – 4 gallons of fuel per hour. The engine is below the pilothouse and is sound insulated. — Sam Devlin

The Sockeye 45 is available in study and full construction plans, as well as a custom build from Sam Devlin.
