The Latest

fter my post about the Top 10 Designs, I had a request for the top 10 sailboat designs. So, here it is! Once again, these are the top 10 Sailboats according to our boat plan sales. It doesn’t necessarily mean that a lot of people are building these particular designs. For example, the Sabotina is the most popular yet we have very few photos posted.

So what’s up with you sailboat builders? We mostly get photos of power boats. You’d think that with gas prices, just the opposite would be true. Maybe sailboat folks are so laid back and easy going that they don’t think to send us photos. Or, maybe you’re all out sailing away to better places! At any rate, enjoy the beautiful photos of the top 10 Sailboats. And the countdown begins…

Drum roll please….

    So to summarize, the list is:
    #10 – Topper – 10 foot Car-top Sailboat
    #9 – Tango – 18 foot Sloop
    #8 – Glen-L 13 – Simple Rig for Single-Handed Sailing
    #7 –Bull’s-Eye – 11′ Stitch & Glue Skiff for Oars, Power or Sail
    #6 – Minuet – 15 foot Overnight Sloop
    #5 – Glen-L 12 – A Lightweight 12 foot Sloop
    #4 – Eightball – 8′ Pram
    #3 Glen-L 15 – Roomy 15 foot Family Sloop
    #2 – Glen-L 14 – Lively 14 foot Sloop
    #1 – Sabotina – 8 foot Sailing Pram
    #3 – Eightball – 8′ Pram
    #2 Glen-L 15 – Roomy 15 foot Family Sloop
    #1 – Sabotina – 8 foot Sailing Pram

    Interesting that we have multiple entries for the top three positions and that they aren’t always the same. Looks like the Eightball is #4 and #3. The Glen-L 15 is #3 and #2 and the Glen-L 14 is #2 and then off the list entirely. I’m confused.
