Great Alaskan 25' to 28-1/2' Offshore Powerboat

The Great Alaskan is a very versatile inshore/offshore powerboat with a seaworthy semi-dory style hull. These fiberglass/wood boat plans give the builder the freedom to adapt the cuddy, pilot house, and cockpit layout to his preference. The plans include 3 different layouts and several lengths to choose from (or to start from).

  • Stitch-n-tape construction. Required experience: Novice
    • No wood working, boat building, epoxy, or fiberglass experience required - Just a willingness to build and create the boat you always wanted - We're here to help you do that!
  • Only basic tools required (jig saw, sanders, drill, etc)
  • Length overall: 25 to 28-1/2 feet LOA
  • Width: Just under 8' 6" (trailerable with no Wide Load permit or banner)
  • Power requirements: Options include outboard(s) or sterndrive, 140 to 225 hp
  • Speed: Up to 47 miles per hour
  • Efficiency: 3 to 5 miles per gallon (in typical offshore conditions)
  • Roomy cockpit, pilot house, and queen-size sleeping arrangments in the cuddy
Plans Include:
  • Construction Manual Set (print(ed) on 8.5 x 11 inch paper)
    • Brief Manual - Overview of build process
    • Construction Manual, Part 1 of 2 - A comprehensive introduction and instructions on how to use epoxy, fiberglass, and plywood in stitch-n-tape boat building, and instructions on building the basic hull. (Approx. 100 pages)
    • Construction Manual, Part 2 of 2 - Building the cuddy, pilot house, and cockpit layout. Finishing and powering your boat. (Approx. 100 pages)
  • Drawings (print(ed) on 8.5 x 11 inch or 11 x 17 inch paper)
    • Drawings Set 1 of 2 - Approximately 15 drawings for building the basic hull
    • Drawings Set 2 of 2 - Approximately 15 drawings for building the boat superstructure (decks, power options, cuddy, pilot house, etc)
  • Instant download access of PDF-format manuals and drawings upon purchase. Download links are provided by links sent to you in email immediately after your purchase

Website Status:

Under Construction! The Glacier Boats of Alaska web site is in the process of being replaced...

We are working hard to bring back the full capabilities and content of the old web site, but in this new one, and trying to get the work done ASAP. This will include restoration of user accounts and full access to the plans that you have purchased. If you need access to the plans that you have already purchased, please contact me through our Contact page and I will get them to you immediately - and apologize for the inconvenience in advance!



Coming soon's our plan of attack for the new Glacier Boats of Alaska web site:

  1. A placeholder web site for Glacier Boats of Alaska and DigiBoats will be put in place (DONE) - We will begin offering various digital and CAD services, and selling other's boat plans as well as ours (primarily in digital download format) soon and this is the web site where it will happen. If you are interested, contact us for more info...
  2. This initial Glacier Boats site will soon be updated to let you buy plans for the Great Alaskan (DONE), but will lack user management and download capability (for existing customers) - If YOU are an existing customer and need access to your PDF format plans and drawings for the Great Alaskan, please contact us. In the mean time.... your access to plans will be provided here soon...
  3. I will import users from the old web site and restore login and plans download capability - IMPORTANT!! You will need to RESET your password once login capability is added to the new web site. Password reset will be required upon first login.
  4. The Study Plans and Full Plans Download access will be added for registered users that have purchased these plans.
  5. Finally, the Glacier Boats Forums will be restored to the new web site (DONE)


We have a LOT of work is ahead of us over the next several weeks on the web site... We thank you for your patience and understanding! Please do check back often... and feel free to provide feedback along the way
