Boat Archive

Below are the boats built by students at the Academy as part of the City & Guilds 38 and now 40 week course since 2006. Simply click on a boat to view the photographic diary of the boat’s progress from start to launch.

From the boats built by the Class of February 2017 onwards we are giving much more detailed information on the individual boat builds. The information will include:
– Origin of design and any variation on original plan or source
– Construction method and timber/material used
– Details on weight of fibreglass cloth, glue brand, paint colour and manufacturer etc.

Although we will not detail every single process or material, the new boat diaries show how the boat was built, using what materials and why. Where possible there are links to further information.
