OPTION 1 – You can have the kit delivered to the boat builder of your choice.
You pay them to assemble it and then finish it off yourself. Just follow these easy steps.
- Buy the plans and have your material supplier deliver the kit to your builder.
- Order a trailer and deliver it to your builder.
- Book a painter and take the boat to them once the fabrication is finished. (Some builders offer a painting service). Once at the painters order your engine as they can have a long lead time. Make sure the quote includes steering, batteries, instruments and navigation lights.
- Organise to get the windscreen fitted and book your trimmer.
- Get the motor fitted and tested (windscreen should be on before water testing)
- Take the boat to the trimmers for carpets, seats, and clears.
- Finally fit your locker hatches and fittings. You can do this yourself or take it back to your builder who can do it for you. That’s it – you’re ready to enjoy your new boat.
The builder will give a warranty for his work, as will the painter and trimmer. The engine supplier will give an engine manufacturers warranty.
