Kids and adults will enjoy this masterpiece as a playground play structure, club house and simply as a thing of beauty in the yard. This play structure resembles a real clipper ship and includes a cabin with a door and porthole windows that open and close, an upper deck with a ladder, a foredeck with climbable ratlines, cross bars, a crows nest, a sand box and more.

The plans for this build-it-yourself play ship are a step-by-step pictorial guide to constructing a Play Ship with beauty, charm and realism. The illustrations and pictures explain each step in progression with helpful and enlightening pictures. As the famous saying goes, "a picture is worth a thousand words."

The pictures and brief explanations make each step, from start to finish, clear and easy to follow. Each current step is colored in magenta for clarity (see the Construction Plan Samples page). With these plans, you can construct your own play ship using common materials available from any lumber yard and hardware store.
