Default Shallow draft like a Hinckly Picnic

looking for a high quality manufacture of boats. That makes a clean classic line boat like a hinckly - picnic boat or simpler(lobster boat)30-40ft. Whit a jet drive with a very shallow draft. draft under 20 inch. Speed above 35kn. Was thinking aluminum or fiber. Boat will be used in south america on a river!
Would love to hear any suggestions, we have moving sandbanks with a hydro power plant that changes water level in river we usee it on, by up to 15ft, so i need a very shallow draft.
thanks for any input

Talk to Bill Judge. He is a build to order builder. He may be able to do a jet drive on the Judge 36 to get the draft less than 20". I know the boat is available with twin outboards which gives a draft around 20"

Here's an option that was built by and for one of the founders of "J-Boat" sailboats. It has been stored in the back of a good friend of mines shop and is currently in Stonington, CT. It also sits nicely on a trailer.

The Little harbor Whisper Jet was manufactured by Hinckley and even shares the "jetstick" system. The Whisper Jet (in my opinion) is far better looking than the picnic boat and they're powered by twin Yanmar diesels making them significantly faster than the picnic boats. Available in sizes from 34-55 feet.

on2max:

Does this design do anything for you? It was done originally as a custom design for an Australian client (not mine) and the designer has made it available for additional builds. Single jet drive, 38' long (plus platform), 10'6" beam, 22" draft. If that's not quite it, let me know. We can fine tune this one or start with a blank sheet to get you what you want.

Contact me through my profile to discuss the particulars.

Strike 35 Open Jet

In this era where if you take the logo off many boats and place them side by side you'd be hard-pressed to tell them apart, you will never mistake the Strike 35 for any other vessel. The comparatively low freeboard around the cockpit makes for a most distinctive, striking profile.
However, Strike includes plenty inside the gunwales to recommend as well. For example, the cockpit � at 90 square feet � qualifies as the largest of any 35-foot center console. Add to that the flush deck from stem to stern � no step up or slopes � and it suddenly becomes much easier to follow a fish to the bow.
Perhaps the only sacrifice you make for this Ponderosa-size spread is the Lilliputian head in the bow. I'd rather see the aft-facing seats to either side of the head disappear to offer just a modicum more cabin space.
The Strike 35 hides its inboard diesels amidships and under the console and provides four ways to access the engine compartment: The helm footrest opens up; a hatch on each side of the console provides quick checks; and the forward seating area lifts and lays open for complete access.
The propulsion system constitutes this particular boat's most fascinating aspect. Strike coupled a pair of 450 hp Iveco NEF diesels to Hamilton jet drives! Certainly, everyone I have met who lacks experience running such propulsion truly dislikes it. Practice, combined with some expert instruction, will change your tune.
The captain of our boat during the Miami Boat Show was a Miami-Dade fireman who captains one of the department's fireboats � all of which use jet propulsion. No matter what the wind or current threw our way, Capt. Rene could make that boat dance. In fact, there is absolutely nothing that any of the pod drives like Volvo's IPS or Cummins MerCruiser Zeus can do that Rene couldn't do with the jet drives. He provided an extraordinary lesson in boat handling. But here's the other benefit � one that answers the naysayers complaints about pod drives hanging down beneath their hulls: With jet drives, you have no running gear hanging down beneath your hull. Talk about shallow draft! I challenge you to find another 37-foot inboard diesel boat with a two-foot draft and virtually zero appendage drag.
In the past, some jet-drive-powered boats I've run suffered from significant lag time coming up onto plane. This Strike with its Hamilton jets planed instantly and with virtually no bow rise since the jets' thrust vectors parallel the water's surface. We topped out at a whopping 46 knots, turning 3,000 rpm while burning a mere 32 gph. She cruises efficiently at 35 knots while turning 2,600 rpm and using only 22.8 gph. Figuring a usable 270 gallons out of the 300-gallon tank yields a cruising range of more than 400 nautical miles � very respectable!
The Strike 35 feels like a very heavy boat, taking head seas smoothly; however, as with most jet drives, she hits her cruising speed in a scant two boat lengths. And yet she banks and slides well enough to keep from throwing any of your passengers overboard.
Since it's a semicustom boat, you can stipulate whatever fishing features you want and where you want them placed. Standard equipment usually includes freshwater and saltwater washdowns, a helm leaning post, coaming pads, three macerated fish boxes and loads more. Construction consists of a solid fiberglass hull to the gunwale and Nida-Core composite-cored hatches and decks.
You really have to get on a new Strike 35 with jet drives to believe what these unique boats can do � they make an amazing fishing platform.
