Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


The 18' Exe Dory has been redrawn for simple stitch and tape construction using 5 sheets of 9mm (3/8’’) ply in it’s construction. Beam is 4’5 1/2’’ across the gunwales and 2’3’’ across the chine. Weight is approximately 200 lbs. The overall shape is similar to that of the 14 footer, but this craft has been designed as a large open fishing/workboat for three or four people to use. As with the North American fishing dories, these boats can be stacked one on top of the other, and cheap materials could be used in their construction. The plans also show details of a sailing rig with rudder and daggerboard and a 5'6" beam version.
