Buccaneer 10-31

The Buccaneer 10-31 is ideal for people looking for higher load capacity in a shoter hull. For another size of this model, check out the Buc 10-26.


This design is intended to maximize stability while still moving through the water with moderate efficiency. The maximum beam of the hull is located toward the bottom of the hull near the waterline, making the hull very stable and easy to paddle.

*Weight of hull: Hull weight will depend on skill of the builder and chosen build materials. Achieving the lowest overall weight will require the best materials and a highly skilled builder.

A small transom was incorporated into the design to make hull assembly easier. The maximum width of the transom is only 4-5/8" [12 cm] so it should not cause any significant turbulence.

For epoxy and fiberglass, starting price will be about $220 plus shipping in the United States depending on the brand and vendor you choose. This doesn't include items such as varnish, brushes, rollers, mixing sticks, gloves, etc. See our list of trusted suppliers.

For marine grade plywood, price will be about $150 if you pick it up yourself. Delivery cost of full sheets of plywood is expensive. Please contact us for a kit price if you are considering having plywood delivered. Our precut kit price may be cheaper than what you'll pay for the full sheets and delivery.

A builder who chooses to draw and cut out all the panels manually can save around $200-$300 over the cost of CNC cut kit. However, drawing and cutting the multiple panels on this design will be time consuming and there will be a risk of error.


Please Note: This is a multi-paneled hull and will require a little more time and effort to assemble than some of our other designs. This would be an acceptable project for a very careful first time builder. But consider if you build a simpler project first, what you learn on the first project will allow you to build a better, lighter second project.

The hull will required about 50-95 hours to complete. You can save about 5-10 hours with a precut kit. These times are rough estimates and will vary according to the skill of the builder. Please note these are "hands on" hours and do not include the time waiting for epoxy to cure.
