Plans to build the 27' Newfie St. Pierre Dory
The Newfie is named of course, for the island of Newfoundland, in the Canadian Maritimes. Newfoundland is close to the famous Grand Banks, where cod fishing has been king since before Columbus set foot in the new world. The North Atlantic is renown for nasty storms and the St. Pierre's have to handle bad weather in stride. My version is light and strong, and designed especially for the home builder. These are usually powered with low horsepower diesels. A Bedford lifeboat diesel burning about 1/4 gallon per hour, or small sailboat auxiliary would be perfect.
You can build the Newfie as the traditional inboard version with a 10-40 horse diesel, or as an outboard version, having a wider aft section to accomodate an outboard well for a 10 to 40 horsepower high-thrust outboard motor. Both options are shown on the drawings.

Our study plans are two of the actual construction drawings. They're not enough information for you to build the boat, but they do give you the overall boat size, shape and construction methods. This is a pdf file readable with the free Adobe Acrobat pdf file reader.
