L’Arche Stock Plans

Construction Plans

The L’Arche construction plans include all the instruction you will need to build the boat. The drawings include:

  • Sailplan
  • Profile and Arrangement
  • Laminate Schedule
  • Strongback
  • Bulkheads
  • Furniture
  • Rudder and Daggerboard
  • (6) sheets of full size mold templates

Along with these detailed drawings, you will receive a step by step build outline, an estimated materials list, and full technical support from CYD.

You have the option of purchasing paper construction plans or as downloadable construction plans. The paper plans are sent by mail in a tube as to not damage the full size templates. The downloadable plans are in PDF format and can be retrieved after we send a download link. It is up to the customer to get the plans printed.

We use PayPal for handling our online orders. If you don’t have a PayPal account you have the option of paying with a credit card.

Study Plans

Study plans are available for those clients who require a more in-depth knowledge of the boat, the detailed construction drawings, the recommended build process, and an estimate of related materials. Using excerpts from the L’Arche build book, illustrations, and commentary on the construction plans, you will be confident of what it takes to complete the project.

Electric Propulsion Plans

The electric propulsion on the L’Arche dinghy has proven to be easy to install, easy to operate, and easy to maintain. This do it yourself project is a quarter or less of what it would cost to purchase a commercially available electric propulsion system. The plans consist of a wiring diagram, parts list and recommended vendors, illustrated guide, and multiple photos to help you with your installation.
