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.

At Angus Rowboats, our passion for adventure naturally draws us to the mystique of the Northwest Passage – one of the world's most captivating and perilous waterways. Historically, this elusive passage promised a shorter shipping route, spurring early navigators to fervently chart and struggle through its icy intricacies.
The summer of 2023 saw three audacious teams, including one using our very own RowCruiser boats, aiming to be the first to traverse NW Passage solely by human power within a single season. As the season concludes, we've chronicled these attempts, and catalogued past human-powered endeavors to navigate the Northwest Passage.
