Atomite MkII is a 9 1/2ft single seater hydroplane and is much the same as the original design of Atomite by William Jackson. I have made several corrections to the measurements of frame heights, but other than that the hull and general layout is as per the original. There are several parts that I have improved upon from the original plans, particularly with respect to modern manufacturing methods. A nice simple little build that should be a good bit of fun.
This boat is available to purchase as a plan, kit or a complete finished boat. Details of each are listed below.
Boat Building Plan Set
The plan set is for a plywood skinned version of Atomite MkII. It contains an illustrated document showing assembly of the parts and a SketchUp Model for referencing the general assembly and location of all components. DXF files for all components are pre nested onto sized panels ready for sending straight to the manufacturer or timber supplier. Files are supplied in digital format only and are available to download directly at the checkout. Now also included is a 3D STEP file for Atomite MkII for more versatile use in CAD packages.
License – This plan set is for single personal use only. Not for resale or commercial production, please contact me if you would like more information regarding commercial licensing.
Boat Building Kit
A complete boat building kit for building your own plywood version of Atomite MkII including the following:
- CNC cut Gaboon plywood frame components
- CNC cut Gaboon plywood gussets and skins
- CNC cut MDF form and alignment parts
- Long timbers including battens, chines and keel
- Strongback timbers
Please note that due to the size of the timbers provided the kits are only available for collection from my workshop.
Ordering a Finished Boat
A complete, finished boat can be supplied, all of my boats are built to order by myself to the highest standards. Hulls are of cold moulded construction offering the end user a modern, low maintenance wooden boat that will give many years of pleasure, a turn away from the reputation of wooden boat hulls of the past. Boats are supplied ready to go, set up on a custom SBS road trailer with covers, ropes, fenders and everything you will need to get you going.
A wide specification range is available for this boat and this is one that should be discussed in detail. For more information and to discuss the possibility of a new boat build please contact me.
