Motorsnipa - Motorboat

Actually, it's not more than 100 years since we first placed a motor in a fishing boat. In Blekinge it was in 1904, a 4 horsepower Höör engine, whose value was more than 4 times the boat.

After that, the fishermen quickly realized that it was profitable, new engine types were developed, they became cheaper and more reliable. At first, you took boats that were built for sails, in the stern, spaces were cut out for the propeller and holes were drilled for the sleeve and shaft. Such a boat can be seen on plan no 103, in the 1920's it got an engine and deck. But in the drawing it is reconstructed to its sailing origin.

It did not take long until boats were built that were adapted to both engine and propellers. In addition, the shape of the boat hull was changed for the sake of bearing, both in stem and stern. For many boat builders it took time to change their eyes on the boat shape, it was only after the war as they became more motorboat builders.

Small inboard engines were also developed, suitable for small boats of 14-15 feet. One such is on plan no 34. The first was built at Hästholmen in 1951 to an inland fisherman who used the boat daily for 30 years. The boat was equipped with a 2 horsepower AW engine.

However, the boat engine was a blessing for larger boats that were heavy to handle, with a gear engine the boat could be handled safe even in rough weather. People soon began to build a cap over the engine, but very soon the entire boat was roofed with deck and spaces for the crew. Security increased significantly.


The measuring is done from existing boats that are traditionally built. Some are still in use, some are stored in different museums and some are left as wrecks in different places. Some of these wrecks have more or less fallen to pieces, but are reconstructed at the plan. Several boats are gone and does not exist any more.

For most of the plans a complementary sheet with information about material and dimensions are enclosed. On the plan the boat is drawn in external profile and cross-section profile at CL. In plan, each half with interior and the other half without. All ribs are drawn.

The plans are printed on coated standard paper 90g, mostly in size A1, but can be bigger (e.g. vrakeka 28 feet) or smaller. The plans are sent rolled in a paper cylinder.
