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?

I don't know about laser cut, but there are some good choices...

Legend Model boats

Dumas Model boats

And don't forget to check out the "Woody" thread here on RCg.

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" :
