Peregrine Trawlers, 46, 58, 66, 76, 86
The Peregrine Series was developed with Scott Welch as a development of his current boat, Island Eagle, designed by Arthur DeFever and built in 1962. Scott and I felt that a wonderful cruiser could be created using the Island Eagle layout with a few refinements and additions. A major addition is the integral swim step on the transom, a feature all of the Peregrines share. All the hulls share the same hullform as Island Eagle, a single chine vee bottom, thus lending themselves to steel or cold-molded plywood construction. And they all share the raised pilothouse over the main deck level main saloon and galley. Staterooms are below and well separated by the amidships engine room.
