“Lil Sis” – 24’ x 8.5’ Landing Craft

This landing craft was designed with a specific purpose in mind……to haul a decent payload and to operate in very shallow water, while still having a moderate V-hull for open ocean travel to the shallow locations. This project also features a bolt-on cabin that sits around the side console. The cabin can be removed for times when the entire deck space is needed for a large load of moose or caribou!
