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.

Kingfisher plans are very well done

I bought the plans to see how a wooden shell is constructed. I may design my own faster, sleeker, longer version. First though I will learn how to row a shell and then take it from there.

The extra mile

You went to the source for permission to digitize the plans for me.

What a kick to build this skiff

Quite a while ago I bought the plans of this baby. Last year I started building it . From bezinning to the end it was one big kick. The plans together with the building guide published in wooden boat guaraties a smooth build. If it is wise to build a rowing skif by youself in stead of buying one is cost wise doubtfull. I spend 750 euro on the skin only, 2.5mm mahoganny multiplex. But nothing beats the kick of rowing in a boat you have build yourself.
