Islander 55 Study Plan (Digital Download)

Find the right boat for you

Wharram Study Plans are intended to provide more detail than is available in the Design Book. In particular, they will help you decide if a particular boat design is for you.

The most important part of the Study Plan is the Materials List, which will list the major boat building materials requirements so you can cost your project in your own area.

We feel sure that after studying these plans you will appreciate the quality and detail of the Building Plans, which, for the more recent designs, are more like a course in wooden boat building than just a plan set.

Study Plans are available as a Hard Copy or Digital Download. Downloads are instant access and eliminate postage costs, which is particularly beneficial for international customers. Digital download customers will receive an email with download instructions upon checkout completion.

Hard Copy Study Plans are being phased out and will no longer be available after stock has sold out, at which point they will be digital only. Get your hard copies while you can.
