Olga 28

The Olga 28 is a trailerable power cruiser constructed with plywood and epoxy. The design was inspired by the classic power boats of the Pacific Northwest, while her construction takes advantage of modern materials to produce a lightweight, easily maintained boat. If you’ve been considering trailerable trawlers or small tugs, consider the Olga 28. She offers excellent performance and efficiency in a beautiful package.The Olga is designed as the perfect boat for a couple (or a family) to cruise the Puget Sound or Inside Passage to Alaska. She would also be a great boat for cruising in warmer climates, where her spacious pilothouse will provide welcome shelter from the sun. She is built of plywood, over plywood bulkheads, frames and stringers. Builders have the option of using a traditional chine or using epoxy coving and biaxial tape (“liquid joinery” style); bulkheads and interior joinery can also be secured with cleats or epoxy and tape.Power is supplied by an outboard (90 hp is recommended for a top speed of about 16 knots). She can handle additional power if more speed is desired. An inboard diesel can also be fitted, either with a sail drive for lower speeds, or via a v-drive for higher speeds.The Olga provides berths for 4, 2 in the large forward double, and 2 on the convertible main cabin settee. The settee is raised for a better view while underway, and has generous stowage below. The galley includes sink, stove and refrigerator, while forward there is a private head and separate wash basin. The raised deck gives the Olga a remarkably spacious interior for her size.The plans for Olga include 13 sheets (24″ x 36″) and a 60 page construction guide with text and photos.
