This section is reserved for boats built to our plans. Contact us for details if you have a boat you would like us to list.



This hull has been well built and finished to the specs of the original design.  The hull is complete with the lead ballast attached.  Due to changes in the builders circumstances it is offered for sale.

The boat is currently lying in a boatyard in Maine and is available either for completion by the boatyard or a buyer.

Package includes a new diesel engine and several spars.  A fibreglass mold taken off the wooden prototype is also available.

This is an interesting opportunity for enthusiasts of small traditional cutters.

22FT Cutter Lady Jana (ex Surprise)

We built this small cutter some twenty years ago for your own use and sailed it extensively on the west coast of British Columbia including a circumnavigation of Vancouver Island and several  trips through SE Alaska.  She holds a special place in our affections. 

She has spent the past ten years on Lake Erie in Pennsylvania where she has been meticulously cared for by a genuine wooden boat enthusiast.  The boat comes fully equipped including twin cylinder diesel auxiliary and a custom built twin axle trailer for road transport and storage. 

She awaits her next happy owner, further adventures, and perhaps a return to salt water?

Price US$60,000
