Paul Gartside is a boatbuilder and designer currently based on Long Island, New York. We build in wood using both traditional and modern methods, provide custom design services in all materials and offer a catalogue of stock plans through this web site.
Visit the Custom Boatbuilding pages to see photographs of a variety of boats as they took shape in our workshop.
If you are interested in building a boat for yourself visit the Stock Plans pages, where you will find a wide range of boat plans that may be purchased on line. While these are professional plans, they are heavily detailed with the home builder in mind, and there are choices appropriate for every skill level. Check back now and then to see new Stock Plans as they become available. Browsing can also give you an introduction to the range of boat types and styles we can build for you.
