   This page is an index to all the published yachting designs of Dr Harrison Butler, known to the Association. It is arranged in chronological order by earliest identified date of publication. That publication source with date is given but, to reduce clutter, an 'obvious' code has been employed where, for example, YM represents Yachting Monthly magazine. The following links may be used to quickly scroll down to the year of interest;

1904  1905  1906  1907  1908  1909
1910  1911  1912  1913  1914  1915  1916  1917  1918  1919
1920  1921  1922  1923  1924  1925  1926  1927  1928  1929
1930  1931  1932  1933  1934  1935  1936  1937  1938  1939
1940  1941  1942  1943  1944  1945 

   In February 2015 the HBA had many of Harrison Butler's popular design drawings professionally digitised at high resolution. The resulting images are of the quality necessary for new-built construction or rennovation work by a boatyard or an individual. These are available to buy from our Chairman, John-Henry Bowden at a cost of £30 a drawing, £20 to members. The number of drawings for any given design varies. As an example, if next to a design is HQ - Yes, 3 then three High Quality drawings of that design are available. Typically these might be a sail plan, the elevations, and the lay out of the accommodation. HQ - No indicates that we only have the drawing as published in the named source. In February 2016 the HBA started a three year program to place all of the designs online, at the low resolution appropriate to a page on a website. A PDF of Mark Miller's Catalogue of Harrison Butler designs is available is our resources section of the website. Drawings of many designs are also to be found in the recently published 5th Edition of Harrison Butler's book “Cruising Yachts; Design and Performance”.
