SAVE TWO THIRDS! YES, you can build your own boat & SAVE TWO THIRDS of the cost of a factory built power or sailboat, YOU can prove it ... Just order the PLANS of your choice,  build your own & you can SAVE 50% of the cost of a USED boat &, you do not even have to do all the work yourself to save.

 Easy planing at low speeds, great stability whilst at rest, and  reduction in fuel consumption without compromising the strength, durability and safety of the design, careful consideration was given to loads of storage lockers, comfortable seating throughout and a stable platform for fishing or other recreational activities without compromising safety for those on board.
    Designed also for ease of construction for the first time builder, the Mushulu 14 is light enough to be easily trailerable for adventures in distant places. But overall, it had to be simple and easy to build, without spending everything you have.

    For the interior, it had to be clean and simple, with a loads of room and storage. Emphasis was given to having higher than normal sides and comfortable seating arangements, without having your knees in your face.
Within the seats there are 2 large sealed lockers, for all those items you may want locked away, while still retaining the foam filled buoyancy compartments in the outer seat sections, as required to comply with the standards. The bow seat also doubles as an anchor locker.   
Overall, the design had  to be kept simple, clean and functionable, for a great days fishing or simply out and about with the family.

Hi all,
Just had a successful splashing over the weekend! :D
Properly launched my recently completed Mushulu 14 over the weekend, and I have to say, this thing is awesome!
As posted in the build thread, I worked flat stick through the Easter/ANZAC break to complete and splash the boat, but only narrowly managed to get it wet at the ramp for a water-test just before sunset on the last arvo of the holiday.
Was obviously totally psyched, but didn't get to get out of the creek, due to the wind blowing a gale, and the sun going down.
Mission accomplished however, as my aim was to get the hull in the water!
Well... this boat is absolutely awesome... bloody loving it! Leaps onto the plane and pumps out two perfect in-out ramps for wakeskate enjoyment.
Hanging to get out behind this beast and have a shred! YEEEEEEWWWW!!!!

Again, thanks to Mark and all the boat builders on the BMD forum, for providing great advice and help inspiring confidence on a daily basis!
And of course to the two trusting crew members, my girlfriend Jo and my sister Ali!

Cheers, Andrew.

Mushulu 14 Plan Price

The construction is epoxy-fiberglass-plywood composite, a stitch and glue composite system designed for efficient and fast building. To put it another way, the hull material is engineered as a fiberglass laminate whereby the plywood is treated as a thick, yet weaker laminate within the fibreglass schedule.
Building the boat is easy. The builder simply assembles the hull as a plywood boat first, then glasses the outside and inside with fiberglass, to produce a strong composite hull without all the time consuming woodwork associated with traditional plywood on frame. Bog, fair, paint then time for the internals. Its that easy
