The Didi Mini Transat Mark 2

The mark 2 has a similar materials list to the mark 1, in our kit to both designs, we include the extra materials to the boats interior,they are also CNC cut, we are the only
company to offer this?

The basic kit without the wood to building stocks and stringers will cost you U$5854 only, about Rands 46,834 plus Vat to local customers.

We can ship to the USA at about U$500 or close.

Note, we can also do the Didi Mini Cruise, there are some extra plys to build in cost wise.

One of our export kits we sent to Pittsburg, USA, a group of college kids are building it.

Radius Chine Plywood


The following list of materials is approximate and intended for calculation of approximate costs. We offer no guarantees of accuracy.

The list is for all timber in the construction of hull, deck and interior, including building stocks, temporary bracing etc. Allowance has been made in the quantities for about 20% wastage, with the exception of the building stocks and chipboard, which are net.

These figures allow for building with 6mm plywood skin for hull and deck. If you want to build with the optional 9mm hull skin then replace the 3mm plywood with 4 or 4.5mm thick, whichever is available in your area and replace 7 sheets of 6mm plywood with 7 sheets of 9mm. The extra weight of the increased plywood thickness will be approximately 30kg (66lb) with Okoume plywood.

MARINE PLYWOOD 1,22x2,44m (4'x8') (preferably Gaboon or Okoume plywood)

3mm (1/8") - 7 sheets

6mm (1/4") - 18 sheets (21 sheets for Cruise-Mini) at an extra cost

9mm (3/8") - 17 sheets

12mm (1/2") - 2 sheets (4 sheets for Cruise-Mini) at an extra cost

RESIN & GLASS (for coatings and reinforced areas)

Epoxy resin (low viscosity 100% solids) - 40kg (90lb)

50mm (2") Wide woven tape - 60m (200')

75mm (3") Wide tape - 15m (50')

100mm (4") Wide tape - 15m (50')

450g/sq.m Biaxial fabric - 8sq.m (90sq.ft)

The above list is what we include in the base kit.

One of the two Didi Mini Transats we built, named Warlock and seen here at the RCYC in Cape Town Harbour, it was this boat that allowed us to develop the boats interior, that includes the ballast water tanks as well.
