Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


The Skylark 12 is capable of having a small cuddy fitted forward for protection and shelter or simple dry storage of gear. Side benches can be fitted with storage or buoyancy under and the whole boat is big enough to be fitted out to your own requirements. As with the other dinghies of her class, the pram shape gives much additional buoyancy and volume right forward and allows the crew to move around the boat far more freely and safely. Apart from the obvious advantages for a working/fishing craft, this makes life a lot safer for small children. Beam is 5'. With a sprit boom, there is less likely hood of heads getting bumped and the gunter rig combines excellent performance under sail with easy reefing and allows shorter spars which fit inside the boat. She weighs around 100 lbs. which means that she can be car topped and uses 4 sheets of 1/4" ply. Construction is simple stitch and tape (or epoxy) with most of the basic construction taking only a few days and the panel shapes are given on the plans. The plans include all details for the sails etc. There are three different rigs shown for the Skylark 12 and also a 3 chine Mark 2 version.
