No experience with Francois Vivier’s plan yet but he has some great designs and the plans are extremely comprehensive.

A beginer can build like a pro with the detail in his plans and patterns.

Petter, I just got back from atrip to Tananger Norway.

I love the Danish and Norwegian double enders.

I have never seen or heard of this site till now.

Thank you so much for posting it.

Swedish Plans

There is a Swedish older man who make plans of older wooden clinker boats.

You can see and order them on his site

However, these are mostly Swedish east coast built boats.

Oughtred's Acorn is indeed a good choice and probably the best for a new builder.

Gartside has a similar 12' dinghy but I would say a bit more challenging.

It was designed to put boat school students through thier ,paces.

Ian Oughtred's catalogue is in the wooden boat store site.

He has some of the most beautiful designs out there with the Acorn skiff and others.

Dinghy Plans
by: Mike

This dinghy was built using plans from Gartside Boats.

Some of the best looking plans that I have seen are by Francois Vivier.

One of his ‘Ilur’ designs, has recently been built in Ireland.

There are also some free boat plans that might be worth having a look at, however they usually require a lot of careful lofting to avoid costly mistakes.

Jordan Boats do plans and kits for Iain Oughtred designed Plywood clinker boats.

Their ‘St Ayles Skiff’ has become very popular among skiff rowing communities such as Scottish Costal Rowing.

There are other sources of plans, the ones I've mentioned above are just some that seem to me to good quality and more or less what you seem to be looking for.
