Full-Sized Model Yacht Plans (Currently Unavailable)

M Boats at Marblehead, 1938.
We have shelved our project to put plans in electronic form, as there seems to be many other ways in which we can spend our energies serving our membership.We have over 300 plans in one form or another in our inventory. All of these are plans for boats that were designed to sail in the model classes (e.g., "M," "A," "X," etc.).

We have no plans for full-size boats. If you're looking for those, you should contact either The Information Seaway, who run a mailing list for scale modellers, or The Nautical Research Guild.

These plans are available from the Vintage Group. Please make checks out to U.S. Vintage Model Yacht Group. All prices are postpaid, Priority/Air Mail. Plans are rolled in a mailing tube, except for outside the U.S., where the various postal regulations force us to fold them. Add $5.00 for overseas postage, and U.S. funds only. See the store page for address and payment details.
