Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy


You may order our plans either as paper prints, or as digital download files.

Paper prints are non-fade photocopies of the original drawings. Upon ordering you will receive confirmation by e-mail of your order. The plans will be shipped shortly thereafter, folded in a 13 x 10 inch envelope, by regular mail. Overseas orders are shipped by air mail. Delivery time is usually less than three weeks worldwide. Shipping cost is added to the plan price, and varies depending on your location. Shipping costs are calculated in the checkout process.

Digital files are high resolution scans of the original drawings, in PDF format. You will receive an email confirmation of your order, and a download link specific to your purchase. There is no shipping charge for digital files. When your download is complete you may copy the PDF files to disc and take them to your local copy-shop for printing. Many copy-shops will accept the files by e-mail. If you experience any difficulty in having your files printed, please let us know. 

Download links expire after 3 uses. If you lose or misplace your files, please contact us with your name and order number, and we will reissue download links for your purchase.

NOTE: A wide-format copier is required to print the plans to their original size and scale. Paper width is 36 inches and the depth is normally about 24 inches. 


All sales are final. However, if for any reason you are dissatisfied with your purchase, please contact us right way. Customer satisfaction is an issue we take very seriously, and we will endeavour to rectify any difficulties or concerns you may have.


We charge and collect sales tax on all purchase made within New York State.  The current rate is 8.625% and for New York State residents will be calculated at time of checkout and added to their total.

We do not charge sales tax on purchases from outside NY State and overseas.  Please note, however, that our overseas customers, particularly in the UK and EU, may be charged VAT at the rate applicable in their own countries upon receipt of their orders. We advise they check with their local tax authorities to understand their obligations in this regard.


The purchase of a complete set of plans entitles the purchaser to build one boat from those plans. Paul Gartside Ltd. retains full copyright and ownership of the design. If you wish to build more than one boat per plan, please contact us for permission to do so.

In the digital age, infringement of copyright is easier than it has ever been. However, our ability to offer plans in this manner depends on a level of trust and honour in this regard.

Distribution or sale of designs in whole or in part represents infringement of copyright and is strictly prohibited by law.
