Launch Day


Many sailboat plans to choose from.

Is it cheaper to build or buy?

There are many yacht plans to choose from, but dont kid yourself. Many have tried to do it on the cheap and their result shows.

If there was a cheaper way, the sailboat designers would tell you. Afterall, they would use that reason to sell there plans!

If you want a yacht with all 'bells and whistles', keep working because it does cost money.

Enough waffle, jump into the website and have fun
