26′ Doug Hylan Top Hat launch, 2002
Good speed and sea keeping ability with low impact & noise
PAGAN is a joy to handle in any weather.
PAGAN was built as the prototype for our TOP HAT design, inspired by Harry Bryan’s Handy Billy.
Like Harry’s smaller design, PAGAN gives a very quiet and soft ride with low fuel consumption and excellent seaworthiness.
Her lines show flared bow sections and a tumbled home transom, giving her hull a classic elegance.
A 50 HP Honda motor drives her at 17 knots.
PAGAN was built with vertical grained cedar topsides and a two layer marine plywood bottom.
This structure was all glued with epoxy resin, then sheathed with dynel and epoxy for low maintenance and abrasion resistance.
