FreeShip software

Boat Design

FreeShip software designs can be developed and printed from your home PC. This allows you to build scale models of your boats. A table of offsets included in the program will allow you to transfer the dimensions of your boat on to plywood in full scale.

I use FreeShip boatbuilding software for my layouts. The lofting isnt perfect but it will get you really close. I have tutorial videos on my YouTube channel that will walk you through the basics of the software. Once you have a basic understanding of the program, you can unfold the pieces of your hulls on to flat sheets and cut them out of plywood. DelftShip is a similar program with more features but you need the paid version to develop hulls,
