The Cape Charles 32 kit

This has been on the go for some while but has now started to become a reality.

The Cape Charles 32 design has progressed to the stage that we have sent construction drawings to the first two builders so that they can start planning their projects. One is waiting for a kit to be available in a few months before starting. The other will wit for the northern summer before starting. I must still supply deck hardware layouts, finalise rig details and do rudder detailing, other than that it is done.

This is in many ways a classic cruising version of the Didi 950, with almost identical length and beam. It is detailed to a similar high standard of information, so I am pricing the plans at the same level, US$1500 to build from plans with offsets. We will also have full-size Mylar patterns available for bulkheads as an optional extra for $600. Shipping will be added to those prices.

Watchmate 850 AIS from Vesper Marine

We have sold the Watchmate AIS now for some years, known to be the very best there is, they have some strong features such as a very low power draw, it is so low you can leave the instrument switched on 24/7.

This carton contains an 850 AIS and an Antenna splitter, cables are supplied also.

The splitter, which also allows you to hear broadcast stations from your masthead VHF antenna, this is really useful when you have a steel or ferro built yacht.

The Watchmate 850 AIS, as with the antenna splitter an instruction guide is supplied.

Type approved and this one has been pre programed with an MMSI number for the Australian yacht we will deliver it to.

Delivery by Fedex takes one week, that costs only U$85 for a splitter and Watchmate 850 AIS plus local clearing fees. Contact me on the prices for the splitter and AIS.
