15' Mandarin Rowing Skiff Plans

Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


This design is a 15' version of the 17 footer - the beam is the same at 45" and she has a single traditional oarlock. She uses just 5 sheets of 4, 5 or 6mm plywood and the plans give details so that she can be made in 2 halves split at the centre seat. The drawings give the plank shapes and details for simple stitch and tape construction and also the mould/jig details for those wanting to build her with clinker/ply.

She is ideal as a personal traditional rowing skiff or you can use her to take the partner and dog at the same time for a nice trip down the river to the local pub.
