The first Devlin design, the Egret is a proven 15′ 3″ open sail-and-oar adventurer. Easily singlehanded, she is stiff, stable, and comfortable in a breeze. A little too much breeze? She’s also easily rowed, or for those of us who dislike excessively mixing labor and leisure, she can be built with a motor well.



Read Sam’s design notes about his original design.

The Egret is available as a DIY set of study or construction plans, or a precision CNC cut kit.

  1. Concerned persons, I’m considering building your Egret 15 from your kit and plans. A few Questions: You list the design displacement as 850# on the cover sheet and 550# on the kit description!? What is a reasonable order of magnitude cost for the materials (wood, hardware, sail, oars, etc.) not covered in your kit?; Does a design, performance estimation, etc., exist for lee boards to replace the center board? Does the rudder kick up? Is the optional outboard well inboard or on the stern?


    • Hey John,

      Did you ever find an answer to your question? I was wondering the same thing, about to start building my own.
