Selway Fisher boat designs

After a youth messing around in all sorts of boats on the Thames in the 1960's, Paul Fisher gained a degree in Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding from Newcastle University in 1974.

In 1982 he formed Selway Fisher Design, gaining a reputation for designing traditional-looking boats using modern construction methods. He has designed boats for professional yards, but the bulk of his design work is mainly for the home boatbuilder. Thousands of boats have been built to his designs all over the world.

He is a member of the Royal Institute of Naval Architects and the author of several books covering various aspects of wood boat construction and sailmaking.

Paul has sailed in all sorts of craft around the coast of the UK and raced in everything from Dragons to the IOR fleet on the Clyde.
