Kayak Plans and other Wooden Boat Designs
Guillemot Kayaks has been offering complete plans and instructions for building high performance wooden kayaks since 1993. Each kayak plan includes all the forms drawn out at full size and individually. No copying or lofting is required, just glue the plans to your form material and cut out around the lines. Each plan is printed out as an original to minimize any chance of errors being introduced in the reproduction process.
We have plans for the following:
- Sea Kayak Plans
- Canoe Plans
- Tandem Kayak Plans
- Recreational Kayak Plans
- Specialty Kayak Plans
- Rowboat Plans
- Strip Built Boat Plans
- Stitch and Glue Boat Plans
- Hybrid Boat Plans
Each boat is meticulously designed in a process that typically takes several years of analysis, designing and testing. I am first and foremost interested on how the finished boat handles on the water and concentrate my design efforts towards making the best performing boats you can find. My years of paddling experience comes into play in every boat I design and my years of building boats ensures that the design will be something you can build and enjoy.
I have created several "Families" of designs where the different boats in each family bear a similar design aesthetic and related performance profile. For a high level description of these different design families please refer to the links below.
