Suppliers of Bruce Roberts Boat Plans and Designs.

 

Bruce Roberts International, the original Bruce Roberts Design Office began life in 1968 in, Queensland, Australia. We are still located in Queensland, Australia and in 2010 had a name change to Fine Line Boat Plans and Designs

For over forty five years the Bruce Roberts Group, with input from many designers, shipwrights, builders and owners, have been drawing detailed plans for sailboats and powerboats with the home boatbuilder specially in mind. These designs range in size from 5.8 mts to 20 mts and can be built in many different materials.  We have designs in steel or aluminium in either multichine, radius chine or round bilge hull forms. Most designs are also in fibreglass using either c-flex, foam sandwich or single skin hull construction methods or in cold moulded ply or strip plank using what is commonly know as wood epoxy boatbuilding. Thousands of designs marketed as Roberts designs have been built in backyards and successfully sailed around the world.

In our archives are nearly all the designs that we have designed over the years. If you are resurrecting an older Roberts boat then it is very likely we will still have the drawings to help.

The emphasis has always been on safety and the fact that when building your own boat you can not only build for less but can build what you want, not what a boat salesman tells you you need. The plans come with full size frame patterns and detailed construction drawings as well as information on building one's own tools, fitting self steering vane, mast, trailers (for trailerable boats) etc.
