First of the EasyBuild Range!

I'm very happy to say that the plans for the first design in the new EasyBuild Range – No. 155 EasyBuild 4.5 half-decker – are now available to download online.

A lot went into this design. The first of a completely new range of boats. The first to come in a single all-inclusive package of "standard" plans, CNC cutting files and new enhanced plans for self-cutting parts if that is what a builder wants to do.

As with anything brand new there are a few things still to do. As of now, not all the build instructions are completely finished. And there are still a couple of plans to finish. But other than that, she is ALL DONE!!!.

I am also very encouraged to see that several sets of plans have been sold in the first few days of being available. And reports back from potential builders are very positive – about the plans, the unprecedented level of detail they contain, and most importantly the boat herself.

For truly, plans are nothing if the boat isn't just right.



Hi George,
I am new to your site and to your designs, I have drawn and built quite a few boats but I am really taken with your cad designs.
I am still old school pencil and paper designer and sometimes I wish I had your cad design ability, it really is the way to go !
I, like many boat dreamers out there, have built and sailed many more boats in my mind than I have in the physical world.
Your 4.5 m easy build is the next boat I want too build and sail with my grandson, lovely looking boat, has all the qualities you need.
I would be interested to hear from anyone presently under construction.
Personally, I would like to add 10% to the present design, what are your comments on this ?
Also I would probably build in timber frames, keel, stem etc, (still old school builder I know )
I have already had quote from a CNC company so the ply option is still on the table,
Look forward to your reply,
