The ECLIPSE 15m is designed specifically for twin installation with engines around the 300/400 h.p. category weighing approxi­mately 908 kgs each. Twin 360 h.p. V8 diesels on 2 to 1 reduc­tion swinging 24/30 propellers will give a top speed of 30 knots and a cruising speed of 25 knots in normal cruising trim ie. half fuel, half water. This design would also suit twin outdrives as the veed hull is ideally suited for outdrive propulsion.

Construction is sawn frames with laminated stringers and three watertight bulkheads. The bottom is skinned in 2 skins of 112" or 12mm and the sides 2 skins of 318" or 9mm using solid timber on the double diagonal. This tried and proven construction guaran­tees a stiff bottom free from flexing and undue movement as all the bottom skin is adequately supported by the internal frame work. The interior layout can be adjusted to suit individual pref­erence but the one shown can be used as a starting point. Access to the engines is through the saloon floor with one hatch under the table and another hatch by the L shaped settee. The cockpit is of generous proportions as well as the large boarding or swing platform built into the stern of the vessel. Access to the flying bridge is by wide staircase from the cockpit up through the back of the bridge.

The Eclipse has been specifically designed as a high perform­ance diesel launch and is designed to be run in the 22/30 knot range. Therefore it needs adequate h.p. to achieve this type of performance. The external styling has been designed to mini­mise windage especially on the forward sections of the craft to eliminate beam wind steering problems.

The plan includes FULLSIZE PATTERNS of the frames, stem and transom plus full working drawings, engine installation, lay­out etc.
