Mark V Designs


Mark Van Abbema
Mark Van Abbema

You are probably familiar with Mark Van Abbema and his designs. Mark started building the Mark V 39 in the beginning of August, 2000, and it was launched early September, 2001. His Dad started building the Mark V 20 in October, 2000, and it was launched in November, 2001.

Since then, Mark has designed the Mark V 28, a smaller version of his large houseboat but one that is capable of long distance cruising none the less.

When Mark approached us about selling his plans online, we did not hesitate to respond, as we have an affinity for this type of boat.  In 1995, we built a Bolger Tennessee (29' x 6' OB cruiser) and used it quite a bit on the south Texas coast.
