NOTE NEW FOR SELWAY FISHER DESIGN Ė ELECTRONIC FILES FOR PLANS

All Full Construction Plans and Study Plans are now available as electronic PDF files which can be sent to you as email attachments, for you to download. When you go to order a plan you will have a choice of two Buy Now Buttons - one for the Printed Plans (to be sent by post) and the other for the electronic PDF version of the plan, which will be sent to your email address. 
Generally, the prices of the PDF versions for boats above dinghy size (where there is usually more than 4 sheets of A1 print), are lower than the printed versions, as no printing is involved. Once payment for your order has cleared, sending the PDF files attached to an email is almost immediate with no waiting for the post and with guaranteed delivery to any country.

Please also note that the Construction Manuals are also available in PDF format and can be emailed to you.

 Paul Fisher BSc. MRINA - the Yacht & Boat Designer

After a youth messing around in all sorts of boats on the Thames, I gained my degree - a BSc (Bachelor of Science) in Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding from Newcastle University in 1974.

Straight after University l worked in the design office of McGruer & Co. Scotland for 4 years - famous for high performance racing /cruising yachts beautifully crafted in wood (cold moulded as well as conventional clinker and carvel). l then became Technical Manager at D.M. Russell Marine - formerly Jas. A. Silvers yard just up the road at Rosneath, for 5 years - famous for their motor yachts - this period found me sailing/cruising in all sorts of craft around the coast of the UK and regular racing in everything from Dragons to the IOR fleet on the Clyde.
