Stock plans are the most affordable approach. My current offerings (and some designs under development) are detailed below.
Custom and semi-custom designs
In addition to offering plans for stock designs, I offer semi-custom and custom designs. I specialize in working with builders and owners to develop a design that not only meets the normal requirements of sailing abilities, appearance, and layout but also takes advantage of local materials and personal abilities and preferences regarding construction. The cost of semi-custom and custom designs varies with the size, complexity, and level of detail required, but is often no more than other designers' stock plans. Don't hesitate to inquire if you're interested in either a modification of a stock design, or a completely new concept.
