The Boat Builder Central 
Family of Websites, for all your boatbuilding needs

We supply plans from several designers, Marine Epoxy resins, Fiberglass cloth, Marine Plywood, and everything else to make your boatbuilding experience easy.

Select your Boat Plans

Our designers are leaders in the Marine, and Naval architecture communities with decades of experience at boat design, building, sailing and maintenance.  We sell plans designed by Jacques Mertens-Goossens, Richard Woods, and Evan Gatehouse. 

It's all about the Core

The most important part of building a boat is choosing a good core material. Start with our quality selection of Water-boil-proof Marine grade plywood, and you can't go wrong. Whether you choose lightweight and flexible Okoume Plywood, or the slightly stiffer, and stronger Meranti, We have the plywood for your build.

  • I jumped the gun and bought my 3/8 1088 okume from a local place here in Houston just to find out later that boat builder central could have shipped it to me cheaper. I don't know if this is still the case but you should check and see before you jump the gun like I did.
  • Got the plans today-- 6 days from ordering. Thats dam fast. They look very comprehensive.

We carry a wide selection of Composite Materials, Paints and Primers, Fiberglass Cloth, Epoxy Resins, and Rigging/Equipment to give you every available option for your boat. If we don't carry it, we'll help you find it!
