NZ is a small country with a population of 4 million as opposed to 60 odd million in the UK. Class numbers are always going to look small to us. Plus the NZ National authority has had a crazy policy in recent years of discouraging local classes and only supporting International ones where they possibly can...

I'd say £7000 for a brand new boat, custom or not, is decent value.  How much does a RS100 come to with trolley and covers?

What would a builder give as a price if they had firm deposits from say 6 buyers. The deposit would need to be set at a level where the buyer will not back out easily - say 50% of build costs.


PM me... I'm sure we could sort a builder out that would be interested in building a limited run at a competitive rate.

That's a pretty rough estimate, I wouldn't hold a builder to it. But... :)

went away to find figures...

Hull £4200 added a bit of tolerance
sail £650
mast boom £1080
foils £430
stock (est) £200
Fittings (est) £500
Cover (est) £80
Combi (est) £500

TOTAL £7640

What a great looking boat, I'll be asking for a test sail..!  But JS, there will be no fancy covers for you to make by the looks of the photo :-).

I suppose if we're on a run of small fast trapeze boats and you're thinking of adding an assy, probs should mention the light skiff (baby musto skiff). Ive spoken to the designer and although he was rejected by ovington as a builder he has secured a builder over in germany. She maybe isnt as sleek as the 3.7, but she looks fast and well designed if the musto is anything to go by.

yep... good to mention. It's not really my cup of tea, and at 7.3sqm mainsail really is focused at very, very small people. And I am 5'3. The Farr 3.7 has a 8.8sqm main by comparison and is 10kg lighter.

That baby MPS was the other boat that has caught my eye recently, although my ambition remains to have a go at the real thing when I have the time and money.  Considering I struggled to make my radial to upwind in any sort of breeze I think the light skiff may suit me better.

In Oz - the majority of people keep the boat at home and trail to the club every time so it is handy to have an all-in one boat garage and storage system.  They look flash and keeps the boat and all the gear in good order - but actually getting the boats in and out of the trailers is somewhat of a pain in the rear end compared to a typical UK combi...
