DAYBOAT DESIGNS & PLANS
OTHER DAYBOATS

 

Study Plans are available for these designs - remember a study plan gives you more details and a wood materials list usually on two A1 sheets, so that you can cost out a project before ordering the full plans. When you order the full construction plans you do not need to order the study plan as well, as all the study details are on the full plans.

Note - In the particulars for each design, the dry weight is given for guidance only and will vary depending on the grade/density of plywood and solid wood used - different thicknesses of ply are often used by builders and the dry weight figure is based on the thinnest ply specified.
Also the Guidance Use comments are given in good faith and are based on feedback from previous builders etc and based on standard weight adults - contact us if you want further clarification before ordering/building.
Please also note that we give the computer faired mould, inner stem and transom shapes plus the building jig details for clinker ply construction where stated and recommend that the builder purchases a good manual on this method of construction to use with these details. E & OE

 

Here is a real mixture of dayboat types - from the American Swampscott and Flattie type through to traditional English models with the Tosher and Beach punts :-

15' NORTHUMBRIAN COBLE  

At long last here is a larger addition to our Northumbrian Coble range—at 15’ LOD, she is a big handsome dayboat with space to accommodate the family plus camping gear and stores. The drawings give details for an outboard well and copious amounts of stowage. As with the other Cobles, construction is stitch & tape but the moulds and building jig details are also given along with the same details for a 14’ version and a single masted gunter rig with jib. She could be built as a motor coble (w/o the rig) and could take a cuddy.

16' KANE & ABLE - TWO SUFFOLK BEACH PUNTS
Suffolk Beach Punt

Above and below - an example of Able with the additional plank "rove" on to give greater hull depth.

For something quite a bit larger Kane and Able are two separate Suffolk Beach punts. Both have the same overall length, beam and arrangement. Kane is built using the clinker ply method and computer faired mould shapes for this are given on the drawings. Her midships hull depth is 2’1’’. Able differs in that she has been drawn for the stitch and epoxy method and her plank shapes are given on the drawings. The mould shapes for clinker ply construction are also given for Able and in imitation of some Beach Punts, she has had another plank ‘rove on’ giving her a midships hull depth of almost 2’5’’. Able also has one or two details which are closer to the original beach punts whilst Kane is a bit more simple in it’s fit out. Both these boats use a hull form which is similar to the original boats with their hard bilges making them very stable, sweet ‘wineglass’ transoms, flattish sheer line and strong plumb stem. Both boats carry 300 lbs of water ballast and have a lot of internal space for extended family dayboat cruising. The gaff yawl rig will balance under jib and mizzen alone allowing them to romp along in heavy weather and both boats have an outboard well. Kane has 7 planks per side and Able 8 planks. 
Right is an example of Able with it's higher freeboard (an additional plank 'rove' on)

16' PETITE BRISE MODIFIED SWAMPSCOTT
Petite Brise 16Petite Brise 16

The 12’4’’ Petite Brise has proven to be very popular and we have had several requests for a longer version, so we have gone for a hull length of 16’ and increased the beam to 5’9’’. Like her smaller sister, we have widened out the bilge area of the normal Swampscott dory to give her a wide waterline beam which gives her plenty of initial stability linked to the normal high ultimate stability of the dory shape - she is a dinghy/dory. We have also decreased the angle of the transom and also widened the aft end to give plenty of room and buoyancy for an outboard in a well and she has a fore deck area over a buoyancy/storage compartment. She has been given a gunter yawl rig which keeps all the spar lengths down and makes her easy to sail under mizzen and jib alone in heavy weather. 
Left is an example of the Petite Brise 16 by Paul Ellifrit - in this case he multiplied all the dimensions by 10% and added a cabin to make her into a fine motor cruiser.

16' FISHER SWAMPSCOTT  
We have had many requests for a longer version of our Fisher Swampscott 12 dinghy/dory, so here she is. At 16’ we have designed her to be considerably heavier than her smaller sister, although she could, if the builder wishes, be constructed in the same light fashion using 6 and 9mm ply. However, at 16’ we feel that she could be used much like her predecessors, as a true working boat as well as a good seaworthy coastal and estuary cruiser and therefore the plans show her to be built out of 9mm ply. In fact she takes 7 sheets of 9mm and 1 sheet of 12mm. Construction is very simple using the same technique as that used on the 12’ version, with pre shaped planks (the shapes are given on the drawings) - 4 per side plus the bottom - which are stitched together and then finished with epoxy filleting. There is a forward compartment for stowage or buoyancy and the interior can be changed from that shown on the plans to suit your own requirements. Construction would take about 70 hours. LOA 16'; Beam 5'; Draft 5"/2'9"; Sail Area 90 sq.ft; Approx. wht. 250 lbs. Details are also given for a 5'6" beam version with a wider and more vertical transom.

20' STRIP PLANKED KITE DAYBOAT

The Kite was conceived as a fast and seaworthy dayboat capable of taking a family comfortably on extended coastal camping treks or to provide them with some exciting day-sailing in estuary waters. In designing the hull, we have kept in mind a multi-role concept and as well as providing a large open dayboat, the same hull also has the capacity to take a full deck and cabin arrangement making her into a comfortable fast cruising yacht. As drawn, we have shown her as a simple open dayboat with fully fitted cockpit seating/lockers and a foredeck. Fitting a boom tent will allow sleeping on board whilst the drawings also show an alternative cuddy arrangement with space to accommodate a small galley and Porta-loo. We can also draw up alternative fit out arrangements going up to a fully fitted cabin.
Construction uses the modern strip plank method with a core of Cedar sheathed both sides with glass cloth in epoxy. The ply bulkheads and remaining structure are all bonded in with epoxy. The centreboard (which could be substituted with a fixed keel) has an aluminium core with wood sheath. Ballast is provided by a combination of solid ballast in the bilge and water ballast tanks.

Below is a Kite hull being built by Agusti Torres.

TRACKER 18  

This craft which is based upon the Highlander 18, has been developed for a client in Australia specifically for trailing across rough terrain in order to explore out of the way creeks and rivers which would otherwise be difficult to get to. She has room to sleep 2 or 4 in comfort under a cubby and boom tent. Construction is by simple ply/epoxy and stitch and tape methods and the basic hull can be adapted to take on many different roles. 17’6’’x 5’4’’, weight excluding water ballast 750 lbs Draft is approx. 9’’ with the centreboard up, 3’7’’ with it down.

SWIFT 6m DAYBOAT  

The Swift 6 metre dayboat was commissioned by Mr. P. Roberts who wanted an easily built boat similar in line to some of the French dayboats. In fact, she is also similar to boats of the Gareloch and Loch Long classes raced on the Clyde. The drawings show full details for her construction using the easy stringer/clinker plank method as used on the Islay design but she may also be built using the strip plank method or a drawing can be produced showing plank shapes for stitch and epoxy. Mould sectional shapes are erected upside down on a building frame. The keel structure, transom and stem are then temporarily fastened in place along with the stringers. The ply planks are then applied oversize and trimmed to the shape dictated by the stringers. The chipboard mould shapes are all computer faired so that there is no need for lofting and details are given for hollow wood spars. LOD 6m, 19’9’’; Beam 2m, 6’7’’; Draft .45/1.1, 1’6’’/3’7’’; SA 16.4 sq.m, 174 sq.ft., Weight 750 kg, 1653 lb; Ballast 210 kg, 463 lb. Details are available for a deeper keel and cuddy version (without the centreboard) and a version with greater internal volume and an inboard engine.

16' PIPIT HAMPTON FLATTIE  

The Pipit has been modeled on the old Hampton type ‘Flattie’ which has a flat bottom over most of it’s length running into a moderate ‘V’ aft towards the transom. The bottom also has a reasonable amount of rocker fore and aft and this combination with well flaired topsides on a relatively narrow hull (by modern standards) make for a fast easily driven hull shape which is also easy to construct. The plans show the ply hull panel shapes for stitch and epoxy construction along with the shapes of the centreboard case, transom and frames, making this a very easy boat to build. There is room for dry stowage fore and aft (or built-in buoyancy) and with a boom tent she could easily be slept on. She can either have the old Una rig with single sail or a sloop rig and she may use a weighted ply or steel centreplate.

16' CHINCOTEAGUE SKIFF  
This interesting craft is based upon the 'V' bottomed skiffs which were used on the Atlantic Coast side of the Virginian Eastern shore for tonging and crabbing. These boats were distinctive, with their well flared sides, beamy hull and well raked straight stem and they had a reputation for speed and seaworthiness. The boatbuilder, Tom Dunderdale asked us to look at the hull form to see whether something similar could be adapted for ply stitch and tape construction to produce an exciting craft with a good performance and with plenty of room for family sailing. We have developed a hull which uses a lot of pre-cut ply components to make construction both quick and simple. She is half decked giving plenty of dry stowage space and a lot of reserve buoyancy. A steel centreplate is used and two rigs are shown - a Gaff rig and a Bermudan Yawl. She could take a cuddy and sleeping on board is a definite possibility. LOD (ex. optional fiddlehead) 16'1" (4.9m); Beam 6'5" (1.95m); Draft 1'1" and 3' (.33m and .91m); Sail Area 150 sq.ft. (13.9 sq.m). Weight is around 650 lbs. (295 kg.).

17'9" BALTIC LUGGER
Baltic Lugger

Left an example by Malcolm Edge using the rig off a Drascombe Lugger.
Sea Breeze was designed for a German client who wanted a well found dayboat capable of long single handed passages around coastal waters with the occasional hop across deeper water to new shores. She had to have a reasonably sized sleeping platform (which extends under the foredeck and aft under a tent) and space for a removable chart table as well as plenty of stowage space. The rig had to be simple and easy to stow with all controls led aft to the steering position.  Construction details are for strip planking over computer faired moulds. The planking is glass/epoxy sheathed inside and out. Her generous depth of hull means that she could be fitted with a small cabin as well as alternative rig/keel configurations. LOD 17'9" (5.42m); Beam 6'10" (2.08m); Draft 1'/4'9" (.3/1.45m); Approx. wht. 1378 lbs (625 kg) incl. 496 lbs (225 kg) of ballast - note, the plans also show an alternative sail plan - a gunter yawl with jib/bowsprit.

18'4" TOSHER
Tosher
Apparently, "Toshing" was the taking of copper from laid-up warships. We have used the Mevagissey Tosher as the model for this boat. They were renowned for their speed and sea keeping qualities and apart from removing copper they were also used for estuary and coastal fishing and tending lobster pots and lines off the Cornish coast where the short, steep chop meant that they had to have a reasonable amount of freeboard and good initial stability. These craft are now used for racing as well as working.  Construction is for strip planking over computer faired mould shapes. the planking can either be covered in wood or plywood veneer or in glass/epoxy. She has the size to take a reasonable size of cabin with space for a couple of berths, cooker and wc and we can draw up alternative fit-out details for this arrangement.

25' LAKELAND PULLING BOAT
Lakeland 25'Lakeland 25'
The Lakeland 25 is a modern double chined pulling boat designed for use on lakes, estuaries and offshore by outward bound organizations, scout groups etc. No frame set-up is required - she is made using simple stitch and tape techniques with computer generated and faired ply hull panels stitched together with preformed ply frames and bulkheads. Epoxy and glass tape is then used on all the hull seams and joins. 9mm plywood is used throughout. Twelve rowers can be accommodated with space for their gear under the seats. An outboard well is situated aft and the sole will self drain when the boat is empty and at anchor. She could take an inboard engine and be fitted out with a cabin and more decking.

23'5" EAST CORNISH LUGGER  

This craft takes it's heritage from quite a number of traditional fishing craft used around the South West and French coasts for pilchard and mackerel driving. These boats had quite a number of subtle variations on the lug rig and in this case we have gone for a dipping main with standing lug mizzen mounted fairly well forward making a bumpkin unnecessary. The hull is a simplified form of a type which we have initially developed for constructing simple versions of classic motor boats. this uses pre-shaped ply sides which are attached to a computer generated framework of ply bulkheads and girders. The bottom is formed using arched ply in 2 layers and the round bilge area is strip planked with the whole hull sheathed in glass cloth. She has a steel centreplate and is fitted out in open fashion with side decks and thwarts and has areas for an outboard well and built-in buoyancy. LOD 23'5" (7.14m); Beam 7'2" (2.17m); Draft 18"/4'4" (0.45/1.3m); Sail Area 331 sq.ft. (30.8 sq.m.); Approx. weight 1100 lbs. (500 kg) excl. ballast of up to 330 lbs (150 kg).

18' BITTERN DAYSAILER  



The Bittern design started life when our client bought an old and rotting daysailer which he intended to restore - however, he realised that starting from scratch would be easier and give him a brand new boat which, with modern strip plank construction, would have low maintenance for many years to come. At the same time we increased her length and depth.

She has lifting bilge plates with cases which form the seat/locker fronts and which make her easy to trail and leave an uncluttered cockpit space suitable for sleeping in. An optional cuddy is shown which could be permanent or detachable and she could take a full cabin. A versatile little daysailer for coastal cruising with the family. An outboard can be mounted on the transom or in a well.

FRIGATE'S BOAT
A 23’3” Ship’s Boat for Mr. Ian Bloomfield - this is a strip planked version of a 17th/18th Century Frigate’s Boat - she is modelled on the bluff bowed craft used for general work in the Fleet and will have a carronade with it's slide mounted on the bow! She carries a windlass so that the mast arrangement can be used as a derrick. She has a gaff cutter rig. Beam is 8'.

Whilst we understand that not too many clients will want to build her, she represents the sort of interesting craft we researchand get involved in.

18' BUNGAY BROADS DAYBOAT
This design is based upon the traditional daysailers and small yachts that can be hired on the Norfolk Broads.
Construction is Cedar strip planking over computer faired moulds/jig. The mast is stepped in a tabernacle for easy raising/lowering and she can take 4-6 adults comfortably. Storage is under the fore deck either side of the mast.
The keel consists of lead ballast bolted to a central steel plate (which has a flange at the top thro’ bolted to the inner keel) - the plate is sheathed in wood/epoxy to a foil shape.

18' ANT BROADS DAYBOAT
The Ant is similar in size to our Bungay but represents another variation of the type of delightful dayboat found on the Norfolk Broads. She has a simple high peak balanced lug rig - this shape of sail allows the use of stays which in turns means that the mast can be tabernacle mounted.

The beam is slightly less than that of the Bungay design amidships but we have given her a wider quarter deck again, following another line of Broads dayboats.


Construction is again Cedar strip planking over computer faired moulds/jig. The mast is stepped in a tabernacle for easy raising/lowering and she can take 4-6 adults comfortably. Storage is under the fore deck either side of the mast.


The keel consists of lead ballast bolted to a central steel plate (which has a flange at the top thro’ bolted to the inner keel) - the plate is sheathed in wood/epoxy to a foil shape.

There is no reason why the Bungay rigs cannot be used on the Ant and vice versa.

The Ant by the way, is a river on the Norfolk Broads.

18' CORMORANT FAST DAYBOAT
We designed the 16’ Stornoway for Walt Scherf and having built that boat, he asked me to draw up an 18’ fast dayboat based partly on the Stornoway model but with lower sleeker lines. What has evolved is a hull with 6 planks per side and a very narrow flat bottom panel to make construction easier. The plans have been drawn up for clinker/ply construction but the plank shapes are given for stitch and tape construction too. For both methods, construction starts with a ply backbone epoxied to the narrow bottom panel making a very strong ‘T’ section.

The standard plan uses a aerofoil sectioned daggerboard for maximum efficiency but she could take a hinged centreboard. There is plenty of room for buoyancy and dry storage.

 CALM HARBOUR 12 STRIP PLANKED DAYSAILER

 Based on our Safe Harbour design which was based on the Dark Harbor 12 designed by B.B. Crowninshield in the early part of the 20th Century, this design has been made beamier so that she can carry less ballast and use a steel centreplate.

  She retains the elegantly long overhangs on a 12’ waterline length but has a draft with the plate up of just 1’7” (0.48m) which allows her up tight creeks and back waters.

  Construction is for modern strip planking using Western Red Cedar over computer faired moulds.

 18'7" SNIPA SPRIT SAILING FISHING BOAT
Snipa

Snipa’s (pronounced Sneepa) are traditional clinker Nordic Fishing boats with a reputation for excellent sea keeping qualities and stability. Construction is fairly traditional but uses ply for the clinker planking over laminated frames. Below the waterline some of the more extreme concavity in the sectional shape has been removed to make planking more simple and to make her easier to strip plank if that is the hull construction method chosen rather than the clinker method shown on the drawings.

Many traditional boats have been converted with an inboard engine—the installation of a Farymann 7.5 hp engine is detailed as an option. Ballast used to be stone and this can still be used although a ballast keel is also detailed. She is built over frames which may be traditional solid or laminated and which are computer faired.

 15'1" PORT PEGASUS ROWING & MOTOR BOAT
Marlow 27

The Port Pegasus is a clinker boat which may be used as a pure rowing boat or fitted with a small diesel (ie Farymann 7.5) as a small motor launch with classic appearance.

As a general purpose launch, she could be fitted out in a variety of different ways—ie. With a small cuddy, centre console arrangement or even with an appropriate sail/keel plan. The drawings give the computer faired mould shapes and building jig details for modern clinker construction—framing incorporates the plywood bulkheads etc. Mid hull depth is 1’9” (0.53m).

 

A fine example of the Port Pegasus by Graeme Clark.
 
Graeme's example has had an additional plank added to the topsides giving the hull a little more depth.

 27' NORTHUMBRIAN COBLE
Marlow 27

Most East Coast Cobles were of clinker (lapstrake) construction but a few were carvel and the 27’ Northumbrian Coble emulates one of these by using modern strip planked construction. I have not attempted to ‘modernize’ the concept too much and so have gone for the traditional deep forefoot, well angled rudder and twin ‘drafts’ (skegs) to help keep her to windward under sail and ‘grip’ the water. She is essentially a large open working boat with moveable seating set up mainly for rowing but with and an optional outboard well and a traditional standing lug rig.

Although not shown at present, we can produce the moulds and jig details for a clinker version, if that is preferred.

NEW  16' DUTCH PUNTER
Marlow 27

 The traditional Punter is a small Dutch work boat with a simple single chine and flat bottomed hull and an upper strake which is shaped to give tumblehome. Her sprit rig is very practical allowing the sail to be brailed up against the mast when not in use rather than having to be dropped into the boat. Brailing up also allows power to be taken off the rig quickly.

  Construction is ply over frame with softwood frames and ply girders erected upside down on a strongback, chine stringers fitted and the ply planking put on oversize and trimmed back. This method is used rather than stitch and tape because of the shape of the bow although S&T could be used if all the planking was fitted in 2 thin layers. She uses 7 sheets of 4mm ply and 10 sheets of 9mm ply.

NEW  16' RIVER LAPWING CATBOAT
Marlow 27

 This is a curvaceous and neat example of the traditional American catboat. She has been designed to give maximum usability and space in a 16' long package. There is plenty of room for storage and to fit the batteries for an electric drive pod. The drawings show a half-decked open boat but she could take a simple wood or canvas cuddy, boom tent and has room to sleep on.

 The hull has plenty of form stability in her sections and ends in the lovely tumblehome bow of the traditional cape Cod catboats.

 Construction is for Cedar strip planking over computer faired moulds. The first Lapwing is being built by Tavy Wooden Boats (Devon).

Below are the photos of the first build by John Harris of Tavy Wooden Boats (Devon).  
Below, she emerges and is turned upright - looking very nice.

NEW  30' CORNISH MOTOR GIG
Marlow 27

 Based on the traditional Cornish Pilot Gig this updated version has had it's beam increased from the usual 5' (1.525m) to 6'9" (2.05m) to accommodate an inboard diesel engine and a bigger rig. These gigs were used for general service, salvage and piloting and sometimes, for fishing. With it's engine, rig and centreplate she will be a very useful multi-purpose craft still able to move well under oar.

She can be built without the engine or the centreplate if you want to use her for other purposes. She is half decked but could be built completely open or even take a small cabin.

Construction is modern Cedar strip overlaid with Khaya veneer with several of the moulds being used as permanent frames and bulkheads.
