Welcome to this, the Woods Designs small boat design web site which we hope you will find is an interesting and useful introduction to our range of small boat designs.

This range of small boat designs complement the larger catamarans designed by Woods Designs. All the boats are designed for home building using simple techniques in plywood and epoxy. All are well proven designs and most have been home built by the designer.

Richard Woods, chief designer at Woods Designs has been dinghy sailing for over 50 years. In that time he has raced most dinghies and won four national and one European championships, the latest being the first Blaze singlehander nationals.

He has been a yacht designer for over 35 years and since starting Woods Designs in 1981 has sold 2500 sets of boat plans, while over 200 production boats have also been sold. Boats are in use all over the world.

All our plans are drawn using metric units.
