12' Pram

This design was started in response to some inquiries we have had looking for a larger version of the Rondane 8, as with all the designs we have in their preliminary stages, with a potential builder who is serious about the projectwe would be happy to complete the work.

16' Family Day Boat

This design was developed as a family day boat that offers enough performance to keep those members of the family who want a more sporty boat happy but manageable and comfortable for everyone to enjoy. We also made the decision to stick with  simple stitch & glue construction putting the option of building this boat within the reach of more potential boat builders/sailors. This boat is well on in the design process to the point that we have even had the cost of a kit priced out.

 18' Trimaran

The  trimaran that we are working on can be disassembled for transport with each component part not weighing more than a kayak, this will enable you to disassemble the boat, load it on the car top and get it to the water. We are aiming to keep the boat as simple as possible for the building process as well as transport and use.
