The Sockeye 42 is a full displacement type boat with an almost workboat type appearance, enough room inside to be comfortable with two couples and with modest enough draft 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. I have shown her with dry stack exhaust and would recommend a 145 HP John Deere marine engine. This baby weighs in at 1,500 lbs. and runs at a top speed of 2,400 rpm. She is big, heavy, slow turning and would be a good match for this type of hull. The hull itself is of the fantail configuration and would be very seakindly in the full displacement range of performance. Top speed would be 9 knots and cruising speed would be 8 knots at about 3-4 gallons of fuel per hour. The engine is below the pilothouse sole and is sound insulated to result in an interior that is quiet and warm.
Coming into the cabin from the aft cockpit, there is a hanging locker to starboard and a bulkhead and door on the port side. This door on the port side gives access to the aft cabin area for your guests. This cabin gives your guests their own area to sleep and rest in when they need the space and with a porta-potti and folding sink, your guests don't need to go forward into the main head compartment at night. This arrangement could allow any one of the crew to get up in the morning, brew the day's coffee and enjoy it without bothering the sleep of the rest of the passengers.
