Schionning Designs International Pty Ltd – Leaders in Multihull Design and Kit Development.

Construction Plan Examples

This graph shows the estimated cost of materials for a range of different sized sailing catamarans, finished to a basic standard with standard equipment.
The material cost is all materials needed to build and finish the boat, and does not include the cost of any labour. For home builders, this cost may reflect the entire project cost if doing all labour yourself. However if having the boat built professionally you should multiply your builder's hourly rate by the estimated build hours of your chosen design to get an estimated labour value. These figures include the construction plans and kit price. 

The construction plans supplied by Schionning Designs are mostly CAD-drawn sheets taken from our full 3D model for accuracy. We use a plethora of design programs to create our plans and we stand behind them 100%, providing back-up support should you encounter any troubles during your build. Please be aware that plans are NOT included in the price of your kit and will need to be purchased seperately.

Often when we are working on a custom design for a client that is going to be professionally built, the plans may be Hand Drawn by Jeff, there are a number of reasons for this - the main being that experienced Schionning-recommended builders know our designs and systems and therefore require less instruction and merely the bare technical information. So depending on your experience and needs, we regularly tailor the supplied design package.

Our Plan prices include delivery via an electronic download link. Alternatively plans can be posted to anywhere in the world via courier with a tracking service.

Postage times can vary enormously, so we cannot guarantee delivery times.

The Schionning Designs International Solitaire Series is a serious blue water cruiser capable of taking you around the world with high mileage daily runs in comfort and safety with minimal slamming.

The Solitaire 1490 offers similar internal comfort and space to the production boat competition, but she is far lighter, stiffer and stronger, with better waterline beam values and higher power to weight ration.

Designed primarily as an efficient fast sailing cat with high bridgdeck clearance and chamfer panels to minimize slamming.

The Schionning Design studio can accommodate all design requests, including those for commercial vessels or charter boats, whether it is bare-boat charter, skippered, or day charter with a number of passengers.
