Sam Devlin has a reputation for designing really eye-catching "character" boats. Perish the thought, but I've even heard them described as "cute". Because of that, they are often underrated for their utility, sensibility, durability and performance. The Pelicano is a really excellent example of a comfortable, practical medium-sized skiff that really looks spectacular.
The Devlin Pelicano 23 is a versatile and useful real-world design, immensely more usable than the 18 footer that preceded it. The basic Pelicano hullform is stable fast and comfortable. The Shrimper is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to maximize "livability" in a moderate sized speedboat. The design has a spacious cabin forward, with enough space for a v-berth for the occasional camping weekend. The design has ample dry storage below.
