Looking for a typical kind of woodie


Hello,
I am looking for a specific kind of woodie.
I know the brand, i know the maker, there are even models of it but not in the scale i want and with the drive i want.
But they don't sell plans, not even the bulkheads, only the complete kit, scale 1:10 and that is too small for me and the price is not small, 250 US dollar for just the wooden parts.

So i am looking for a plan that looks a bit like that boat so i can change it a bit and make the boat i want.
But i don't know how this kind of runabout is called.
It is not a barrelback so can someone tell me how this kind of stern is called and if there is a boatplan available that looks a bit like the picture i posted below.
Best would be a Delftship file, that is easy to adjust.

It's a fine fiddly business.

I also nver heard about it but it looks like that type.

The boat is still made in Germany, it is from Kaiser Bootsmanufaktur.
A model is made by Miniwerft but i think 250 Dollar is too expensive for a 17 inch model.

IfI remember right they look like a go fast boat, used in England on the rivers, they actually were made for a slow speed, but really look great. Actually saw a couple when I was over there in 94.
