Cat49 and Wasafari
The Spirited 380 is a sexy looking boat and quite fast. But there are quite some serious issues with the kit www.spirited380.com
badly manufactured. Rebuilt them with a new shaft and close all the voids between the fibeglass and the foam
Dagger board, that one is the worst, you just cannot use them. They are dangerous. Built in two half and then glued together. Good builder
with good process can acheive it properly. In our case the edges where glue for around 5 cm and the rest was a void. The outside skin was also full of void and not bonded to the foam core
The prodder laminate schedule as to be reviewed, actually an aluminum
one is much cheaper and easy to install than the composite one (I agree that it looks nice, but quie a job)
Push pull cable steering
as in his drawing it just is not proper. Those cable have never been engineered to be used that way. It just one of those cheap
idea that put you in trouble in critical time.
hatche design is just not water
Material delivered with the kit is really insufficient by a ratio of more than 2 and the hours are not realistic for a complete ready to sail boat
Wasafari, expect at least 300 000 euro for very basic boat (I believe that you will be over 400 000 Euro at the end of the project
, or you do all the work by yourself and you are ready to spend your next 3 to 4 years building the boat).
Your skill will for sure help you but your CNC will not be of much use. You will receive no file drawing only paper (not even PDF files) I would suggest you to look at the Fusion 40, the kit is easy to assemble and NO FAIRING
and as there is no interior
you will then be able use your equipement and ressources. It is really depressing to work for more than a year and still seing you are very far from even a launchable boat. The Fusion 40 will speed the built for an amateur by at least 12 to 18 month.
To the extreme It can even be assembled, engine
installed in just few month and be launched
The Fusion is also fully CE approved where for the Spirited you will have much more trouble
