Want to build runabout... Question

I want to build what would be around 17' full scale or so model. I have built a few good sized laser cut airplanes that I've flown. I've always wanted to build a neat scale looking runabout... Are there any good laser cut kits for a guy like me who isn't quite scratch build capable?

There aren't many simple laser cut boat designs . Here's a very basic Pat Tritle "School Boat" design, plans and patterns only. A kit can be obtained from Manzano Laser.

If you can spend $250, here's a ready to run ProBoat "Volare" :
