Dix 43 in radius chine okoume marine plywood/epoxy

This yacht was built here in Cape Town, South Africa and by one person.

The hull build time was just six weeks, some help was given by others to set the 18mm thick bulkheads up.

The RCYC slip in Table Bay Harbour

Total time to do the hull and decks was around fourteen months, then the fitting out took place.

This is not one of our CNC boat kits but it does give you an idea what mainly one person can create given the time and effort.

The same yacht and on the HBYC marina in Hout Bay, South Africa.

The yacht at the V&A Waterfront in the Cape Town Harbour.

Back in Hout Bay.

The yacht has since been sold.


One of our Optimist kits has been built in Zurich.

Contact me for the builders contact information.


Hi Roy

Thank you for the optimist kit you sent me.

I have just finished the Alinghi "cult" Optimist. The boat is now for sale.

Please find attached some pictures.

Have a good day?
