The Garvey 11 was slightly too long for a few people.

Rather than just shorten it 1' we designed an entirely new boat but in the same style. The GV10 still has a lot of beam which provides for great stability, interior room, and carrying capacity. She has a moderate deadrise of 11 degrees to provide a softer ride than a flat bottom boat.

Her sheer has a bit more shape aft to give her a bit more pleasing appearance. This is going to be the designer's personal tender on his sailboat. She will share all the good attributes of the larger GV11.

A 5-6 HP motor will plane the boat with 1 person, an 8 HP with 2 average adults. This boat can use a smaller motor, but she is really designed to go fast on a plane.

This boat's transom is designed for a standard 15" shaft or 20" shaft length outboards. Both transoms are shown on the plans.
