Below is the basic Bill of Materials. It will get you a fiberglassed hull with the deck and sole. Rigging it out is left up to the builder since everyone has an idea of their own perfect layout.


Bill Of Materials:
(Excerpts from the Bateau.com FS18 BOM)
The BOM list materials based on our standard layout and includes a 15% waste factor for resin and fiberglass. For plywood, we use standard sheets 4' x 8' (122 x 244 cm). Please read the building notes and see the plans for detailed specifications.
We recommend marine plywood, Meranti or Okoume for this boat. Okoume is lighter but more expensive. Marine fir or quality exterior with no voids is acceptable but may cost more if you want to avoid checking. To keep fir from checking, you will need to cover the entire surface with a layer of epoxy/fiberglass. This of course adds weight, cost, and time.

Plywood 4x8' (122x244cm):


 1/4" (6mm)




 3/8" (9mm)



Fiberglass (totals) :


Biaxial tape

150 yards

145 m


Biaxial Fabric

13 yards

12 m

Resin :


Epoxy, total

6 gallons

27 Kg


Here's a link to a building cost spreadsheet I'm using to keep track of the total project cost...

FS18 Project Cost


Our BOM's are based on material usage by a moderately experienced builder. First time builders will use more resin and waste more glass.
