Shipping boat kits Worldwide

Having an order is one thing, packing it to a standard that ensures that it arrives with the customer is quite another things.

This CKD Boats cc Optimist kit is another one we are shipping to the USA.

Please inspect the packing crate details. The 12mm WBP pine ply box is both glued and screwed together, there is clear plastic sheeting placed over the contents before the lid goes on.

The lid is also 12mm thick, it is a close fit inside the box and side screwed, then steel band strapped for extra security, there are six blocks under the box to enable a Hyster easy access when lifting and moving the box.

A CNC cut Toylander kit

As far as we know it is only CKD Boats cc who cut the Toylander panels using marine plywood and with finger joints rather than wooden cleats which take so long to apply and add to the body weight?

We also do the steering wheel!

Two wheels laminated together make for a nice thickness steering wheel, radius the edges for a better feel.

We do not supply the plans, please buy those from Real Life Toys in Wales, UK.

The lightweight marine plywood we use makes for a lighter body build, so worth the cost to the upgrade over MDF or other similar materials.

We can ship Worldwide.
