This larger version of the popular 15' Dinghy is in many ways an improvement and it is more seaworthy than the 15' Version. The boat has become longer and wider, but especially the freeboard height is relatively larger, so the cruise will be dryer and more comfortable.

The boat is with the same fine lines as her little sister. However the aft ship is changes a bit to make the boat more suitable for a large outboard, a possibility that has been much requested for the 15' Dinghy. So the 18' Dinghy will carry an outboard up to 20 hp (recommended minimum 5 hp), so there should be plenty of speed potential.

The extra 3 feet has been used to make a real outboard well aft and making the seats wider and more comfortable. Due to the innovative use of the plywood it succeeded to make this version without the intermediate frames, making the passing from one thwart to the next without any obstacles.


This boat is easy to build using our downloadable boat plans

Our boat plans are available for instant download so you can start building right away. Available in PDF file formats, each plan includes drawings showing exact dimensions for the hull panels and frame, plus comprehensive building instructions and assembly details.


No carpentry or boat-building skills necessary

You don't need any boat-building experience to build this boat just lift the dimensions from the plans and transfer them directly onto the plywood sheets. The plans allow you to draw full size pictures of the parts of the boat - the bottom pieces, side pieces etc. Once you're done, simply cut around the lines using a jigsaw, then use the stitch and glue building method to finish your boat.
