A multihull that fits in your garage. Narrow enough to walk along the footpath.
Built from inexpensive materials, most available from your local home depot.
If you have access to a CNC machine, you no longer need to scarf the plywood beforehand and no marking out either. Cut all the plywood parts of the boat quickly and precisely. Price is in USD.
The files in this product are for cutting using a large machine that can handle full plywood sheets – 1200mm x 2400mm (4ft x 8ft).
This download includes everything in the full plans + the dxf files and file layout drawings:-
Download file – 8, is a zip file with seven (7) dxf files. Each file contains the hull parts, nested in a rectangle the size of a 1200 x 2400 plywood panel ready for cutting.
Download file – 9, is a 9-page PDF with drawings for the layouts of the hull parts on each of the dxf files. It also includes an alignment drawing, to check the shape and alignment of the finger-jointed panels, before bonding.

for 2 people there is ample room for you and all your gear. High free-board handles choppy water well, even at the rear with lower free-board, things remain dry.
She is easily driven and with just a few strokes of the paddle will coast for 100s of metres in still conditions. And, with the slightest of breeze, you can pack away the paddles.
Walking to the water turns heads. You will meet more people than walking your dog.
Plans include template and elevation drawings for the hull, outrigger, rudder, daggerboard and casing, material list for the major parts and specifications. The suggested rig is a cat rig, as in the photos but you can rig her in different ways, such as gaff-rigged if you prefer.
An electric drive or small outboard motor are also ways to power this boat. An electric drive makes for a great fishing boat, quiet and plenty of room to stretch out inside. Her low resistance in the water means your batteries will take you a long way, and if they die, she is easy to paddle home.
If you build this boat with the idea of using an electric drive, you can save on making a rudder, mast, sails and daggerboard, (although the daggerboard helps when there is wind), you can steer with the motor instead. CNC files are available for building Geelong.
