Rye Bay 228
An easy to build dinghy which can be rowed, motored and sailed. It takes around 25hrs to build from the full kit and you can have the hull stitched together on the same day you receive it. 
This dinghy will take up to a 30lb thrust electric outboard with the battery box under the centre thwart. These lightweight dinghies are easily driven and do not require a lot of power to drive them. A 1hp petrol outboard is the maximum power size engine for this dinghy weighing between 9 and 12kg. Heavier engines (not recommended) as will require added weight forward and sitting further forward.

Rye Bay Pram 6

The pram dinghy version of our popular Rye BaY dinghy design. A small flat bottomed rowing pram dinghy for use perhaps as a small tender or for lake fishing, only 6' - 0" long and 3' - 8" wide and designed to be light enough to be easily carried by one person and transported on the roof rack of almost any car. She will take the smallest electric outboard but can be rowed or paddled. Built-in buoyancy is under the centre thwart or the alternative full length seat but buoyancy bags could be fitted too. Examples of this boat have been used as maintenance craft for small private lakes or ponds.

Available as Premier Kit Only

The "PEVENSEY 2.2" takes the place of the older Pevensey 7. It is 7' - 4" long x 3' - 11" wide (maximum) and approximately 40lb (18kg) dry weight. A lightweight tough little boat with 6mm bottom and 4mm sides or 6mm all round for a tougher though a little heavier boat for heavy duty jobs. She will take a small outboard motor (2hp) but performs well with electric and is easy to row with a skeg fitted. She is most at home on sheltered waters (Category “D”) and has found her main use as a tender to a larger, inland waterways craft. It has also been used for lake fishing. This boat is light enough to
be carried by one person and is easily transported on a roof rack on an average family car.

Watch Bell Pram 8

 

Length - 7' - 8" (2.34m)

Width - 4' - 0" (1.22m)
Dry weight of 50lbs (23kg).
Crew - 2/3 Adults
 
Taking around 35 hours to build, the WATCH BELL 2.3 Pram Dinghy is a great little boat that was very popular as our production boat about 10 years ago. 

Although this kit is for the rowing or motor versions, she can also be converted to sail and has plenty of room inside for a boat of this size, ideal for learning to sail. It has a slight "V" bottom which helps deal with choppier water directional stability when rowing.

The design of these boats allows us to build you a boat with more room and and better stablility for it's size than a stem dinghy.

And it can be carried on the roof rack of the average family car!
The hull is built using the "Clinker Ply/Stitch & Tape" method of construction which gives a more traditional looking boat. You will receive the mould/centre frame.
The kit is supplied in a quality marine plywood with a 6mm planks, 12mm transoms and 6mm framed centre bulkhead and the wood for the seats and trim and and a 6m mooring rope with a cleat.
The boat can be built as our standard rowing dinghy or you can add an electric motor or lightweight 1hp petrol outboard, or add the sailing rig.

Beam 1.19m (3’ – 11”)
Draft 0.115m (0’ – 4.5”)
Dry Weight 18kgs (40lbs)
 
This dinghy was designed as a simple tender for a yacht. It's size was dictated by deck stowage and it had to be lightweight but sturdy and traditional looking. The kit can be built surprisingly quickly, using the clinker plywood method  where the 
boat is built upside down over a framework of the centre support, stem, transom and bottom plank (all supplied). The planks are added and then it is turned over to be fitted out with trim and seats. This all takes about 40 hours but you will build an attractive, traditional looking dinghy 
The hull build kit is available and the sailing kit will be added soon (early 2021).
