Attention: The plans and building instructions of this boat are included into a book in French published as a special issue of the French magazine “Le Bouvet”. Therefore it is not planned to make a translation of the book into English. This issue is now out of print but will be replaced by a new book at end of 2020.

The first Mesker has been built by Skol ar Mor, the most renowned wooden boat-building school in France. Mesker is built in the traditional way. There is not any plywood included in the boat. However, the semi-dory hull shape makes construction easy: limited twist of the hull strakes, no rabbet at the stem. We also use some modern techniques, for example for the laminated frame.

A plywood version is now available and may be freely be downloaded from this page top.

See the French side of the website for more details.
