Robinson is a small recreational yacht. The hull is made of plywood by "stitch and glue" method. This technology reduces significantly the amount of work as compared with traditional methods, and makes the work easy even for a beginner shipwright. Robinson has gaff rig with aluminium spars and wooden dagger board, which simplifies the construction even more and additionally reduces the cost.
The design for "Robinson" was developed in 1982 as "Froggy" and was offered as plans - since then tens of such yachts were built, confirming that it is easy to build and has good sail abilities.

Now, our company offers the boat as complete sets for self build. We changed construction name for "Robinson" and made it more simply. CNC technology cuting guarantee excelent precision and parts fiting. Robinson composition is easier than puzzle, becouse set is equiped with detailed, rich illustrated instruction, which let build own sailboat even to beginner DIY man. There is needed only a basic toolset and driller. Total build takes about 80 working hours. In order to see assembly stages click here.
