over 35' IN LENGTH


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.

We have 5 designs - there are study plans (A1 sheets with sections, construction details and a wood materials list, for most of these designs - for further information please see the price list on the main page.

 

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.

36' LOOSEMOOSE SHARPIE

 This 36 offshore cruising sharpie was originally commissioned by Bob & Sheila Wise who wanted to replace their 26 Bolger sharpie. She may be used as a floating office and home and, with her shoal draft, for coastal exploring where she will be able to sail well up rivers and estuaries normally inaccessible to deeper boats. Construction is ultra simple using the old sharpie method of bending pre-shaped sides around the frames and then putting the bottom on oversize and trimming later.

 The arrangement drawn has a central cockpit with inside/outside wheel steering, a double bunk. forward work area, and pilothouse/saloon. She could be fitted with an inboard engine but the original will be powered when the wind drops by 2 outboards in a well. There is stowage for the dinghy on the aft deck and plenty of working deck space forward. As drawn the masts are unstayed as with the original working sharpies and all rigging has been kept as simple as possible. 

 Ballast is in the form of a 4000 lb. lead keel and the steel centreboard. LOA 36; beam 96; draft 3/68; displ. 15750 lbs; total ballast 5000 lbs. Details are also given for a wider beam version with a beam of 11'6".


 

Details of an alternative junk rig are also given in the plans.

49' RED GROUSE  
This was originally a design contract for the detailed refit drawings for a canoe sterned wood hull which had been totally stripped of it's original accommodation, decking, rig etc. We drew up a new design which has sleeping accommodation for 8 in 4 separate cabins, a large wheelhouse/saloon with galley and a large owner's cabin aft. The refit drawings are very complete and detail the total fit-out including deck/superstructure construction, machinery installation, electrics etc. The Red Grouse has a large machinery space under the wheelhouse/deck saloon which accommodates twin engines, generator, desalination plant etc. The drawings and details would be useful for anybody fitting out a similar craft but we can also draw up hull construction details for any method of build to go with the fit-out details. (Note hull construction details are not given in the plan set and the lines are drawn to scale but with no offsets taken).

NEW  SAFFRON 44' LOD GAFF CUTTER

 This design was commissioned by Neil Williams who wanted a strong, sturdy cruising yacht with a bit of the 'pilot cutter' about her. We settled on a length of 44' LOD (13.4m) and a generous beam of 14' (4.27m) and a fixed long keel with 13230 lbs (6000 kg) of ballast.

 Construction uses the strip plank method with 25mm Brazilian Cedar overlaid with two 3mm veneers of Khaya or a single thickness of 33mm Cedar sheathed inside and out. As with most of my designs the hull is treated as a 'canoe body' being planked up as a shell structure with the wood keel/deadwood added separately - this makes construction much easier and quicker than using a traditional hull shape which incorporates the keel into the hull shape. This allows the hull to be planked upside down which makes the planking process so much more quicker and easier than planking with the hull upright - and when the hull is complete, the wood keel/deadwood is laminated in-situ but not glued or fastened to the hull which means that it can be removed, cleaned up on the bench and set up ready to accept the hull after it has been turned over - turning the hull over without the keel/deadwood is so much easier.

 The space inside the hull is very generous and the accommodation consists of a double berth in a large fore cabin followed by a saloon with settee/double berth and galley opposite - aft of this is the navigation area to one side and a shower/wc room to the other side. Two single berths are under the cockpit seats.

 There is space for 200L of diesel and at least 270L of FW. Details are given for the mast and spars to be constructed in wood but these may be aluminium.
