This is the cabin version of our C19.

The CX19 is a true offshore boat with just the right hull shape for fishing or family outings. The proven hull shape with a typical 12 degrees moderate vee has sufficient deadrise to run smoothly in bad weather but the vee is moderate enough to provide good stability at slow speed without the wild roll typical of deeper hulls.

The generous freeboard and the classic sheer are also tried and true features contributing to seaworthiness. This boat will negotiate both head and following seas with ease.

The self bailing cockpit depth is minimum 26" with 12" wide gunwales. Thanks to the freeboard and transom design, she can be rated to a max. capacity of eight persons (USCG) and we recommend engines in the 70- to 115 HP range. While stronger than the typical production fiberglass boat of that size, she is also lighter and does not require as much HP (or fuel) to cruise at the same speed: a 70 HP will get her on plane.

This boats transom is designed for a standard 20" shaft. The transom can easily be modified to accept other shaft lengths.

The small cabin sleeps two, has comfortable sitting room and ample storage.

The first option to consider should be positive and upright buoyancy (unsinkable boat). This can easily be easily achieved with our marine flotation foam. For production boats in that size, the USCG requires upright floatation.

For family outings, we may want more seating. Some of our pictures show optional quarter seats but a fixed or removable bench can also be installed all across the boat, in front of the motor well. An outboard bracket can be used to free even more space for storage in the stern.

Some details can be changed or added. Standard bow pulpits and bimini tops are easy to fit.
