What you have described in your question is not called a site template , it's called a page layout as shown below :

So To create a page layout follow the mentioned steps below

  • Browse to your publishing site.
  • In the upper-right corner of the page, choose the gear icon, and then choose Design Manager.

  • In Design Manager, in the left navigation pane, choose Edit Page Layouts.

  • Choose Create a page layout.
  • In the Create a Page Layout dialog box, enter a name for your page layout.

Note : you can't save site as a template in Publishing site.

    Ya we can't save site as template then how can create a site template for publishing site – Jeeva Jeyapaul Oct 18 '16 at 11:43
  • Dear @JeevaJeyapaul , Regarding the first comment you can do this by creating application page but in this case, you will not be able to use it as a page layout for other pages as you need ! so I suggest to create a custom master page with the header and footer that you need and use it only for your custom page layout , to change page master page for a page layout check sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/25011/… – Mohamed El-Qassas MVP Oct 18 '16 at 12:24
  • Regarding the Second comment , unfortunately, you can't create a site template from publishing site, meanwhile, there's more workaround to do this but it's not worked properly ! So my advise to you to create a team site and customize your template then save it as a template and if you need the publishing feature try to enable it in site features Please don't hesitate to tell me if you need any clarification – Mohamed El-Qassas MVP Oct 18 '16 at 12:25
