This design uses the same semi-displacement hull that the Kingfisher 32 Cruiser has but it also has a longer working deck and an innovative outside head. Let’s start at the stern — the typical trolling cockpit aft with engine controls and steering enables the fisherman to work from side to side with safety. There are checker boxes in front of the trolling cockpit and lots of good space on the deck. Up against the pilothouse, there is an outside accessed head compartment with a shower included in the space, and doors, fore and aft, for access to either the engine room or the salmon hold. This outside head really allows it to be used for its primary purpose and provides some privacy without taking too much space from the rest of the boat.
Going forward into the pilothouse, you encounter a galley to starboard and a nice dinette/settee to port. Helm and co/helm seats are also included and windows on all sides give good visibility and a feeling of spaciousness. Forward are the typical vee berths with port and starboard berths and plenty of length and width to give a good night’s sleep.
Note the drum windlass on the bow, avoiding the taking of dirty, smelly chain below decks and with a simple hydraulic pump off the engine, this is the simplest and most functional approach.
The rest of the boat you can follow from the drawings and I look forward in working with you on your own version of her. – Sam Devlin
