Boat Design Quarterly SubscriptionEach issue typically describes six designs and includes:
Quality reproductions of the designers' original drawings
Complete hull lines for most boats
Full particulars, including calculated performance ratios
Designers' addresses and phone numbers
Succinct design commentary

Boat Design  Quarterly describes plans for paddle, oar, power, and sail. The boats come from the boards of Atkin, Benford, Bolger, Chapelle, Gartside, Gillmer,  Oughtred, Stambaugh, Stephens, and many other leading designers from around the world, past and present.

To date Boat Design Quarterly has featured over two hundred designs of small boats for sail and power, including canoes, pulling boats, sailing dinghies, week-enders and day boats, cruisers for sail and power, trimarans and catamarans. These now constitute a valuable resource for small boat designers, students and for those enthusiasts just interested in small boats, their design and their designers.
Nearly all the back issues are available as new.

Praise for Boat Design Quarterly
Good reading! BDQ is a revival of the golden age when some editors supposed that some readers were interested in the conception process as an art form. --Philip C. Bolger, boat designer and author (1927-2009)

"Boat Design Quarterly is published as often as possible by BDQ Publications. " - Mike O'Brien.
