The Fall Kit Sale Returns

We are predictable. There are new boat kits every year, three-dozen boatbuilding classes, and usually some sort of bonkers new design concept. And every fall since 1995, we have kicked off the winter boatbuilding season with a giant price reduction on boat kits. That's right, 1995: before we had a website, and before a startling percentage of our followers were even born.

The discounts are steeper this year. 112 different boat kits drop an average of $126, compared to $117 last year. And for the first time in 22 years, sailing component kits and wood-parts-only kits are marked down, too. No boat kit is discounted less than 9% and some tumble as much as 16%.

Standouts include the Northeaster Dory, which loses $196. The Wood Duck 12 Hybrid is $151 off; the Shearwater Double slides $189. 2017's most popular kit, the CLC Teardrop Camper, is discounted 11.4%, or $250.

Not to sound all used-car salesman, but these will be the best prices of the year. They go back up to normal in November, and then the dreary business of annual price increases follows in January. These wooden kits are assembled one at a time here in Annapolis, Maryland. If you wait until the last moment it may take us a few weeks to catch up.

The Lugubrious Fine Print:  The sale ends at midnight, October 31st, absolutely. Normal shipping rates apply. If you wait until the last days of the sale to order, expect to wait a few weeks to get your kit.

Boat kits destined for our classes are special. Discounts and other promotions do not apply to boats built in classes.
