Skylark 9' Plans

Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


We have designed the Skylark 9 for a Tasmanian client who needed a dinghy which was not so big that he could not handle it in and out of the water by himself and which could handle a short, steep chop and blowy conditions safely. The dinghy also had to have as much room inside as possible on a length not exceeding 9'. So we decided to use our Skylark mark 2 range as a model for this new dinghy. The Skylarks have proven highly successful for those who want roomy craft with excellent stability both longitudinally as well as athwartships.
The Skylark 9 is very much a pram version of our Stornoway 9 stem dinghy with the same generous freeboard and simple lug rig with unstayed mast. The hull uses 3 sheets of 6mm ply with a further sheet required for the sailing version and all the details are shown for simple stitch and tape construction. The standard plans show a daggerboard but details are also given for a centreboard.
