The Panga 25 Cabin is our Panga 25 hull fitted with a small cuddy cabin.
The difference in weight is small. As designed, the hull only be 150 lbs heavier. The small change in weight requires to move the fuel tank slightly towards the stern. Compared to the open boat version, the PG25 Cabin uses only 2 extra sheets of plywood.
The helm and controls are on the cockpit bulkhead.
The 12' long (3,60 m) cockpit can be left open, fitted with a U shaped bench or any other reasonably light layout.
The forward deck is recessed creating a convenient place to secure ground tackle.
The cockpit is self draining up to 3,000 lbs displacement. The plans show a cabin opening cut 6" above the cockpit sole to prevent water from entering the cabin but since the structural sole extends all the way to the first frame, the boat is virtually unsinkable even without buoyancy foam.
The cabin is long enough to accommodate a vee berth 8' long (255 cm). There is very limited headroom, less than 36" (110 cm) above the berth. This is a small cabin, adequate for occasional overnight trips, ideal for storage and taking refuge from bad weather while on anchor.
There is sufficient room for a Porta Potti and plenty of storage space under the vee berth.
The plans can be customized as long as the builder does not compromise the structure. The builder has complete freedom in the cabin and cockpit layout as long as he keeps the frames where we show them.
If the builder does not want the vee berth, he must build small shelves 3' wide or stiffeners along the hull at the same level than the berth.
Hatches, portholes, doors etc. are all to the builder's preference.
