First Mate – A 15 ft Boat for Sail, Oars, and Small Outboard. Designed by Ross Lillistone.

Plan is in metric and is available as a PDF download.



First Mate was designed to be the functional equivalent of Phoenix III, being 15′ x 5′ 1″ x 5-1/2″ draft with the board up. She uses the same internal layout, rig options, centreboard, and rudder as Phoenix III, but the construction is in sheet plywood using the taped-seam or “Stitch-and-Glue” method – a system which is particularly suitable for inexperienced builders.
