Optimist Dinghy Template Plans

If you are considering building a wood-epoxi Optimist dinghy, you will definitely need our Optimist Dinghy Template Plans.

The Optimist Dinghy Template Plans contain the descriptions, materials and dimensions of each and every part, all drawn to scale, needed to build the boat. The plans of the auxiliary jig and temporary frames are also included.

The plans are accompanied by a 28-page instructions booklet, with advice on materials and techniques, and a precise sequence of procedures for building the wood-epoxy Optimist dinghy to the official IODA regulations. A measurement checklist is also included.

These plans were developed from an accurate mathematical model of the Optimist hull, which corrects the numerous errors and inconsistencies found in the official IODA plans.

The plans are issued in the form of electronic documents sent to your email address - no shipping costs nor need to wait for the post. They include 14 sheets of professional quality drawings, 5 of them in A3 format and 9 in A4 format, in metric units. You can use these plans to have the parts CNC-routed or laser-cut at your location, or to cut the parts yourself.

Free email support is provided during the build process.
