The DS24 is the Flagship in 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 motor 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 DS24 has been designed to satisfy a variety of working requirements. It can be operate from shallow water and tidal harbours where it is a necessity to berth at all states of the tide.
The vessel has been constructed to give maximum ease of handling and can easily be worked by a single crew member. This has proved to be a major economic feature of the DS24 where the expense of additional crew will limit the cost effectiveness of a small fishing operation.
However, the DS24 is equally happy with multiple crew as proved while winter mackerel fishing in the English Channel and off Lands End.
A vessel working in such conditions must have an excellent standard of sea-worthiness and the DS24 does not disappoint. With its very heavy lay-up and construction this boat has a well proven capability,
The DS24 is available as an open boat or three standard cabin options are available, full forward, traditional Cornish, forward offset or aft pillbox style.
The Treeve DS24 is fitted with our standard heavy duty keel 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 of preference. The steering may be either underhung steel semi-balanced or traditional transom hung timber rudders.
