The Bolger Boats Plans List

A-E

F-K

L-P

Q-U

V-Z

Philip C Bolger passed away in May 2009 after providing the world with many delightful plans.

Plans contact:

Susanne Altenburger 
Phil Bolger & Friends Inc.
66 Atlantic Street
Gloucester, MA 01930-1627 USA

Some designs are available at Instant Boats.

Information Sources: The Bolger Design List is of some assistance.

 

Bolger Boats on the Web is a another resource. Any search in a search engine with the term Bolger - and the name of the design - will usually yield results.

Here's a list of plans with pictures to help with your design decision The idea of the index is simply to more easily put an image with the name of the design. The images will not enlarge.

Not all of these may be available as some were special commissions, studies only or are unavailable for other reasons. If you are very interested in a design you could ask about it on the Bolger Yahoo group to start with. Many people their know the plans very well and Susanne often takes part in discussions.

Some MAIB (Messing About in Boats) Back Issues in this index are available on CDClick Here.

Special thanks to Bruce Hallman for his assistance and allowing the use of his isometrics. Bruce has put together a list using some of the thumbnails I created - take a look.
