Welcome Aboard and thank you for visiting Gil Fleming Yacht Design Ltd. website.

 Boats. For a lot us, that word has a romantic or mystical connotation. People interested in boats dream about them a lot. They see themselves on smooth, bluewater with the sun shining and a warm breeze blowing.

 Hi, I’m Gil Fleming. I’ve lived all of my life on the Great Lakes and always within only a few miles of the shore. Boats have been an integral part of my life. From building rafts and puttering around in old row boats when I was a kid, to paddling flat water sprint canoes when I was in my teens.  As an adult, I’ve spent over twenty-five years boating in sail and trawlers.

 Along the way I indulged my love of drawing by occupying many youthful hours drawing full rigged sailing ships. Later I was able to combine my love of drawing and a persistent curiosity as to how boats work and how they are designed and built. I enrolled in and graduated from the Westlawn School of Yacht Design.

 That got me my start and I have been practicing professionally as a yacht designer and marine surveyor ever since.

Look through the website. I hope you enjoy it. If you love boats and have as much interest in trawlers as I do, maybe we can work together to make your dreams a reality.
