Full plans for Lock Crowther’s Buccaneer 24 Trimaran can be bought from oldsailor7 here. He’s also posted up a threeview, building instructions and materials list which I’ve reposted here as it never hurts to back up fantastic information like this.

A Package From Australia

Buccaneer 24 Trimaran Plans

Guess what arrived in the post this week? A package from Australia – with boat plans inside! Plans for the Crowther Buccaneer 24 Trimaran to be exact. I figured the only way to make a sensible decision on whether it was the right choice of boat to build – or even the right choice to build a boat at all – was to get hold of the plans and see exactly what was involved.

It looks like fun, I reckon I’ll be giving it a go; Money permitting.

I’ll try and document times and costs as I go, including any ideas used to reduce the length of build and overall price as well as modernise the boat a little.
