i am well into a prototype fast 14 footer but it is mostly second hand gear and for instance cut down tornado sport sails, so douse anyone have any idea how much a f14 homebuild would cost with new gear?

1 self build at cost in ply/appoxy stich and glue,
2 to make 1 out of a mould (not including the cost of the mold in carbon or kevelar or somthing along those lines
3 how much is a new alpha omega new in australia?

Darryl, that is a very good price when converted to our currency, norwegian krone.

= £6,750 Sterling

Then you've got shipping and duty and VAT.

There are several small Hobies available in the UK - Dragoon, Twixxy etc priced at less than £6,000 delivered. Admittedly they couldn't hold a candle to the AO in performance!
I wonder what the total delivered to your door price for the AO would actually work out at?

That would depend on what manner you got it into the country <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
Anyway, I was considering the price good for a high-performance sailboat for an adult.

For UK buyers add 17% VAT, about 3% inport duties and just under 1000 Pounds for shipping iself.

Say about 9000 GBP or 13.000 Euro's.

Only a tad cheaper then a Carbon masted Stealth F16, although that boat will then come with a jib setup and other stuff for 2-up racing.

Bern,
Given what you get for your money an F14 is a hell of a lot more BANG! for your buck.

Phill


I know that the voices in my head aint real,
but they have some pretty good ideas.
There is no such thing as a quick fix and I've never had free lunch!
