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. It has turned out to be a minor success as two were built in Greece before we managed to get the prototype finished and tested where it performed as well as the reports we'd had from Greece.


Custom Built Ready for the Water – from £1125 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 21 - 28 days from receipt of payment. We build your boat to your specification on our standard hull build adding or omitting items as you want it.


Custom Built Boats are Collection Only


We have used this dinghy with a 30lb 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 or 1.5hp petrol outboard is the maximum power size engine for this dinghy weighing between 9 and 14kg. Heavier engines (not recommended) will require added weight forward and sitting further forward.
