Model Boats From Selway Fisher Design

4 Mini Yahct Windsor Slipper Launch and 225 Power model boats

This site has been set up to offer model makers construction plans based largely on the full-size Selway Fisher Design. For those of you not familiar with Selway Fisher's range of designs go to where you will find well over 300 designs for craft ranging in size from 6' to 60' covering a very wide range of craft from canoes and dinghies to yachts, motor boats and steam/electric launches. Some of these designs will be used as the basis for a range of plans to be sold from this site for the construction of model boats using various different techniques and wood materials. The Model Boat Plans page will give you a flavour of what some of these plans will be.
