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).


Contains 3 packs, everything you need to build the hull to a stage where you only need to add paint/ varnish and a set of oars or a motor.

Pack 1. Wood & Plywood pack. CNC cut planks, bottom panel, frame and transom, ready for assembly. The wood for the seats and trim is also included.

Pack 2. Epoxy Resin Pack. The epoxy resin and hardenerwith dispensing pumps, fillet additive, mixing sticks, mixing pots, epoxy brushes and protective gloves as required .

Pack 3. Cable ties and other sundry items.
