Available New for spring 2020 delivery, the DS18 is a fine example of the range of custom fishing boats produced by this renowned Cornish Boat Builder, her hull design is the culmination of over 40 years of experience building reliable, seaworthy craft for the commercial fishing industry.  Combining these rugged design characteristics with the finest craftsmanship and carpentry as well as being constructed to Sea Fish Authority standard, these versatile boats are equally at home earning their keep commercially as they are as weekend dayboats, club launches or small cabin cruisers.  The custom fit out options allow each individual boat to be specified to suit her intended occupation, tailored to her owner's requirements.  From the robust commercial standard fit out to the Penberth Model sporting classic joinery throughout, these boats are all built with ultimate seaworthiness and longevity in mind.

The Treeve DS18 is a development of the successful Cove Boat 16 and provides a natural link between this and the DS20. As such it combines the heavy load carrying capacity of the 16 with the proven sea-keeping of the 20.  

The designer Denis Swire C.End, FRINA has given the DS18 a soft forefoot, a clean sweep across the full bilges and ample deadwood aperture, enabling a positive grip for the propeller and the extra wide 1.85m (6'2") Transom is try suited to net carrying.

The DS18 has also been recognised as the first boat of its type to be totally environmentally dual purpose in terms of propulsion, being able to sail at its maximum design speed whether driven by motor or sail.

The Treeve DS18 has established itself as a reliable and easily driven heady duty workboat. The shallow 0.6m (2') draught enables the DS18 to operate from drying harbours, beaches and coves, while the ability to use minimum engine sizes as low as 15hp gives significant savings in fuel costs.

The DS18 is available in 4 versions with one motor boat. The wide and spacious 2.2m (7'2") full beam enables a deck area of 75m2 (800) square feet, fish hold capacity of 3.2m2 (112cu ft) and a carrying capacity of three tons. The MFV version can be fitted with long bite keels for difficult launching conditions or the shorter standard bilge keel for harbour use. When dried out the DS18 will stand almost upright. There are 3 cabin options:-

  • Full forward traditional Cornish
  • Forward offset;
  • Aft pillbox style

The Treeve DS18 is fitted with our standard heavy duty galvanised irons made from 3/8" plate and 1/4" lugs. Timber keels for beach launching may be added. There is ample room forward of the inboard diesel engine to fit an hydraulic pump and equipment. The deck may be self draining or loose board depending on preference on preference. The steering may be either underhung steel semi balanced or traditional transom hung timber rudders.
