For Latest Information on Colin Faggetter designs
please click here.
The designs below are the main designs supported by this group. However we have extended
our support to cover all the designs by the same Designers, Maurice Griffiths predominantly,
but also Alan Buchanan and Kenneth Gibbs and of course Colin Faggetter. If you wish to see
examples of these craft, many are on the photo gallery.

Plus MG's 38ft Barrier Reef!

|We at the EOG are
offering our plans for anyone to see. We are now giving scanned copies
of ours away on DVD at cost!!
We have all the drawings of our own boats available on separate CDs, the Junior, the Senior, the early 1960's Eventide 24 and 26, the later 1973 Eventide 24 and 26, the Steel Eventide, the Wild Duck, the Riptide, the WW, Steel WW, the Storm, and even the Mouette!! The Goosander and all the associated Colin Faggetter designs have been scanned, and are now available. There is a small royalty (£10) on those for the designer. We have even been given a set with which to build a Ferro Eventide! or you could use it to make a foam sandwich version, or even strip plank! They have been added to the Eventide scans. We now also have the 38ft Ferro Barrier Reef drawings and the Good Hope in timber, the Tidewater and Bluewater variants too, all available.
In the last year or two, (2021), we have added drawings of the Golden Hind 31, the Levanter, Francis Drake, Barbican and others... Along with pages of additional notes for builders, courtesy of Mat one of our members!
All are scanned on to CDs as Pdf files so they can be printed full size if you wish from the DVD. We can send any one who enrolls with us and agrees with our simple stance on owners groups, a copy. You are asked just to cover the cost of the DVD and the P&P. Any excess would be a pence donation to the EOG. All we ask is that you enrol with us, showing you agree with our stance. We want nothing more than to preserve these boats.
In the UK the CD cost, inc scanning, post and packing, is £5.00! (overseas we estimate it at just £10.00, including post). Of course if you want to add a donation to help keep the site going, that of course would be appreciated.
(For those worried about copyright, we have checked, they are not copyright. They were never registered! They were given to us the owners, to pass on at cost anyway, what we are doing is passing them on for free!)
For details of how to get hold of these CD's please simply mail us at email@example.com
Some have asked why we simply do not have them as a 'download'. Until recently some of the files were rather large, and each DVD containing other information about the EOG and the designs.
We have now reduced these so can send you fully updated drawings as a download. We do ask that you join first and a small donation would be appreciated to help keep the site going for the benefit of all owners.
We are now the only organisation offering support from other owners and often builders of these designs.
We at the Eventide Owners Group are involved with the ongoing development of these designs..... we now advise all prospective owners and builders!! Where you will find a group of better qualified persons I do not know! Many of us still have copies of these plans and can answer most questions on them, or can give you a dimension from them if you need something specific.
It now transpires that the copyright has long expired on these drawings, others were never copyrighted at all, and as we have copies of them we are offering others to look at our plans for free. We are not making a profit by this, but are determined to keep our boats, that we sail, alive and well!

Sadly we have now had it confirmed that the former eoa has folded. We heard first from Yachting Monthly, then from another owners group and it has now been confirmed. Sad they did not make it to the 55th anniversary. We were approached a couple of years back and asked if we would like to BUY their assets! We declined, as these were donated to the owners and if we paid the old assoc. for them, we had grave doubts as to who would pocket the proceeds. We did offer for them to join us and share our success, sadly they chose not to respond. We said it was only a matter of time. If the people running a group are not committed enough to actually own the boats, it was just bound to happen.
2020 we learn the remaining few had a meeting and took home the silverware. A paltry £200 was donated to charity, so they say. Was that their idea of honesty?? John
