We’d hoped to have the plans available for the sailing RowCruiser months ago, but it’s been a long process. The sailing rig is very detail oriented, and the manual required countless diagrams and corresponding text to clarify the process. Needless to say, we’re excited to finally have it all finished so others can start building their own.
The sailing RowCruiser is comprised of two plans sets – one for main central hull, and the other for the amas, akas, foils and sailing rig. The two plans sets are laser printed on 180 sq/ft of paper. That’s the equivalent area of an average bedroom! Every shape that boat is comprised of is easily transcribed from paper to wood, resulting in an easy and accurate way to replicate the vessel. Each of the two manuals is about 70 pages and provides diagrams and photos .
The plans for the sailing components and amas can also be adapted for other boats, such as large canoes, although a bit of customization will be required to use on other vessels. To learn more about our Sailing RowCruiser, please click here.

We’re happy to see that Julie and Colin's documentary Rowed Trip is featured in the 2017 Adventure Travel Film Festival. Rowed Trip documented Their seven-month rowing and cycling journey from the top of Scotland to Syria. On this journey they used two Expedition Rowboats and voyaged the canals and rivers throughout the UK and Europe.
