Help with ordering

  • Study plans are extracts from the plans allowing the buyer to have a more precise knowledge of the plan content. If you are ordering the building plan, you do not need to order the study plan.
  • The Ilur study plan is common for both “clinker-kit” and “classic” versions.
  • The Building plan is the basic document to build the boat. It includes a free telephone or e-mail assistance.
  • Attention: building this boat requires also a numerically cut plywood kit.
  • You may also buy the CNC cutting files allowing you sub-contracting the kit to a local company
  • The kit is to be ordered from one of my partners.
  • Postage and VAT, if applicable, are included in the shown prices.

Attention: there is two Ilur plans, the historic Ilur, now named “classic” Ilur, and this new “clinker-kit” Ilur which take profit of numerically cutting to make the construction easier. The study plan is common for all Ilur versions.

The Ilur named “Clinker-kit” is a new version of Ilur, designed in 2012 to be built from a numerically cut plywood kit. The hull planking is made of 9 mm plywood. Frames are cut into 18 mm plywood with a timber trim on all visible edges. Stem and many other structural parts are also in plywood but the look of the boat interior remains very close to the original Ilur design. All that results in a building time reduced by about 25%. Of course, the hull shape and the rigs are the same as the classic Ilur. All improvements made to the classic Ilur are also included in this new design. The clinker-kit Ilur is also lighter, and then more pleasant to row.

Ilur was designed at first with the simple lug sail in the Breton style (said “misainier” rig). A lug sloop rig is now proposed and is a valuable option. A balanced lug rig (lug sail with boom) is another option, interesting for river or single-handed sailing. More recently, I have added a very attractive lug yawl rig.

I invite you to discover the blog of Lukasz Kumanowski, a Swedish builder, giving a very detailed and illustrated description of the building process of the “clinker-kit” Ilur.
