The Bluebill is a sneakbox style duckboat designed for a 20hp outboard, with a few key innovative features for better performance and utility. We now offer the downloadable construction plans at 15% off the $65 price for a savings of $9.75. The updated plans expand to 5 color pages having both the imperial (inches & feet) and metric measurements.
The Devlin Bluebill 13 is an evolution of his Broadbill sneakbox. First, it can carry two hunters and their gear, as opposed to the Broadbill’s single hunter plus dog design. This boat also incorporates the innovation of an outboard well and its multiple advantages. Sinking the 20hp outboard into the stern of the boat creates a better load and balance setup for this much power on a small boat. It creates ideal spaces for fuel tanks on either side of the well.
