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/canal 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.
Custom Built Ready for the Water – £575 for standard build
The standard built boat is built in a quality marine plywood, trim and seats are fitted with bottom runners to complete the build. The hull is then finished - one colour outside, white or varnished inside with varnished wood trim and seats. Black nylon rowlocks, basic wooden oars, a 5m mooring rope fitted and it's ready to launch. If you prefer, these boats can be built to order which gives you an opportunity to decide on a colour and make any other changes you might want. Depending on those changes, your boat could be ready in 14 - 28 days from payment. We build your boat to your specification on our standard hull build adding or omitting items as you want it and, of course, painted to the outside colour you want.
We have used this dinghy with a 18lb thrust electric outboard with the battery box under the centre thwart. It performed well. These lightweight dinghies are easily driven and do not require a lot of power to drive them. A 1hp outboard is the maximum power size petrol outboard engine for this dinghy weighing between 9 and 12kg. Heavier engines (not recommended) will require added weight forward and sitting further forward.
