For over thirty years Bruce Roberts has
been designing sail boats and power
boats with the one-off home boatbuilder in mind. These designs range in size from
5.8 mts to 24 mts and can be built in many different materials. We have designs in steel, aluminum or copper-nickel in either multichine, radius
chine or round bilge hull forms. Other designs are in c-flex, foam sandwich and single skin fiberglass.
Others still are in coldmoulded ply and strip
plank wood epoxy. Thousands of Bruce's boats have been
built in backyards and then successfully sailed around the world.
His emphasis has always been Build for Less and
the boatplans come with full size patterns for the builder to
build his hull, detailed construction drawings as well as information on building one's
own tools, fitting self steering vane, mast,
trailers (for trailerable boats) etc.
In addition to the stock boat plans
Bruce offers a custom design service, useful to change existing designs or for a totally
new concept. A complete Catalogue of the designs is
