Rhum 12.3 Plans

Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


This new design is based on the Mark 1 single chine version of the Rhum 11'6" general purpose dinghy. The original Rhum has been extended by 12" which gives more space for her to be fitted out as a proper camping dinghy with space for a sleeping area and a simple boom tent.

Construction uses the simple stitch and tape technique with plywood frames and dividers stitched in place before being epoxy filleted. She uses a pivoted centreboard and the rudder blade pivots enabling her to traverse very shallow waters.

For family sailing she uses a boomless sprit rig and she has plenty of room for floatation and/or stowage.
