Paul Gartside Ltd, Boatbuilder and Designer

  • This is 224 page, full-colour book of essays and boat plans by an internationally recognized naval architect and wooden boat builder. We designed, laid out, and shepherded this book through the whole publishing process in 2014. We supported marketing and set-up for sale and shipping. Thanks to Friesens for the beautiful print and bindery, and to Paul Gartside Ltd. for the fantastic project. We designed and built Paul's website and online store a few years ago, where he sells stock boat plans of his own design. With a solid international reputation and this marketing platform already in place, he was able to successfully self-publish a gorgeous, professional book with our support.
    Preview a sample of the book, or purchase it here — it will appeal to anyone who loves classic boats or has an appreciation for design and traditional building methods.
