Ray Kendrick building his trimaran.

As time goes I had found many fantastic sailboat project web pages and I would like to introduce them for you. This is awesome when man can make his dream come thru, and this time the dream is hand-build sailboat. I hadn`t watch if there any sailboat projects on youtube yet, this will be the next step for me:)

I will start with my favorites, of course.

  1. This is not Ray Kendrick and he did not build this boat. Ray Kendrick is the designer but the builder is Olivier Blanc in Canada
