Design Brief

We were approached by Quiet Waters Boatworks with a unique concept. Their next boat was to be easily trailerable, lightweight, seaworthy, and cruise above the 20 knot mark with minimum horsepower. But the most important, and challenging, was that this boat was to have the very distinct styling of an Express Sportfish but in a much smaller package. Not only does The Hill 16 resemble it’s famous older brother, with it’s generous flare to the bow, sweeping stepped sheer, wrap-around wind screen, and center console helm station, but it will prove to be safe and comfortable even when the conditions aren’t ideal.


The construction method uses a strip plank core built over a male mold system and then covered in and out with fiberglass. Creating an extremely rugged but lightweight composite structure.


The Hill 16 is available from plans or CNC plywood kit for construction jig and all plywood structural components.  Please contact kurt@cernyyachtdesign for pricing and delivery of the plywood kit.
