  If ordering Digital plan sets: These files are in PDF format.  Some designs will have just a single page needed to be printed on large paper... typically if they had full-sized mold patterns. Other pages could be printed on letter or tabloid size paper, if you want to save printing costs. You'll see a measurement on pages that have full-sized drawings, so your local print shop will just need to print to that size. 


“Your downloads are ready” will be the subject line of an email you’ll receive from us—once we’ve processed your digital order. That email has the link to click, so you can then download the file.

This isn't an "instant" process, so if we're asleep, you may need to wait for regular business hours for us to process the order. Although we are quite timely, we may not be processing on weekends & holidays.

Bob Emser, The Art of Boat Building
I Highly Recommend the Haven 12¹⁄₂ Plans

These plans are excellent! Though the Haven 12¹⁄₂ is and advance skill level boat the fact that there are full size patterns for all of the molds and critical parts lofting is not required. If you have good woodworking skills and a willingness to learn and take it one step at a time you can be a successful Haven 12¹⁄₂ builder. I've been documenting my build on my YouTube channel "The Art of Boat Building". The plans can easily be adapted to different hull building methods.
The only flaw in the patterns is the tiller. If your building a Haven I suggest not making the tiller until the hull complete with the rudder attached. Then the slight flaw is then easy to correct.
I've had the pleasure of sailing a Haven 12¹⁄₂ while at the Wooden Boat School. It is a dream to sail even as a novice sailor. After my sailing experience with the boat I immediately purchase my set of plans a decision that is a high point in my life. The designer Joel White is a true master!
I highly recommend the Haven 12¹⁄₂ plans and starting on an incredible boat building journey!
