Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


The Highlander 14' has comfortable sitting room for up to 8 people and with it's two athwartship rowing benches is an easily handled and stable pulling boat. With her loose footed lug rig she makes the ideal sailing craft for family sailing, club use and for beach camping. Her construction takes 5 sheets of ply and with the 12 footer uses a special chine construction developed by Selway Fisher Design utilising both a stringer and epoxy fillet in a normal stitch and tape construction adding stiffness and strength whilst retaining the ease of stitched construction. The versatility of these craft is endless (they can be fitted with cubbies, boom tents and different rigs), and the designer is more than willing to discuss and draw up modifications to suit individual requirements. All these craft are ideal for use with outboard engines.The beam is 5'4" and the weight 155 lbs with a sail area of 84 sq.ft.


Above - an alternative gunter rig is included with the plans.
