Re: Cat-Building Contract

OK. I am cleared to reveal that the cat in question is indeed an Alpha 42. Woo-woo.

Re: Cat-Building Contract

OK, Great. Very nice design.
How long will it take to build you one?
Are you going with keels or dagger boards?

Re: Cat-Building Contract

All this worry and build up for the Alpha 42? There is a thread on it where you could have directed your questions. Gregor Tarjan and Aeroyacht are pretty well known.

Re: Cat-Building Contract

cruisingkrol,

I am with you on keels. It a costly option for the daggerboards.
The difference in draft is only 8 inches.

Sorry if I've offended you, jostalli. I have, of course, read that thread. I just didn't want biased info, hence this thread.

Hey, we're still buying Hull#2. The fact that Gregor Tarjan is involved is one of the major reasons we're willing to take the risk that this will indeed be a great super-safe sailing cat. Also Marc Anasis is a very experienced builder and a great guy. The building company however is not Aeroyacht itself; nor is it Alpha 1 Composites tho' that is, I believe, the liable company. And, we were pretty naive about the boat-building business when I started this thread on the contract.

I do have experience with the equine market and I know for sure that a famous trainer or rider with a great website is no guarantee of a sound horse. Hence the caution.

All you posters have truly helped us.

Re: Cat-Building Contract

Why would you think you offended me? I am, however confused by your statement,

"The building company however is not Aeroyacht itself; nor is it Alpha 1 Composites tho' that is, I believe, the liable company."

Aeroyacht is the distributor of the Alpha 42 and Alpha 1 Composites in New York is the builder. So, are you saying you are having someone else build the Alpha 42?

No. It's a business technicality and business technicalities are what scare me a bit, hence this thread. The actual builder is indeed Marc Anasis of Alpha 1 Composites, but DBA Alpha Yachts. Everything is up front.

It sounded like you were shaking a finger at me because I didn't use the Alpha 42 thread for my question.

It's not Phil, Sid. The Nautitech is indeed a beauty; had a great sail on the 441 a couple of weeks ago. Sorry, love it, but the price is out of our range and a moving target, which I hate. Alpha is priced in $US and no import duty; right size; Gregor Tarjan and Marc Anasis... ???

Cheers.
