New 3C Boats

We are looking at doing some new 3C boats, will be stepped hulled, winged monohulls from female moulds. The boats are to be built abroad and quality / cost are looking very good.

The boats are for all round British racing, looking at rough water boats with 80mph+ calm water speed.

Please pm me or e-mail adam@k4plus.com

A lot of the raceboats I have designed / built in the past have been from male tooling where the boats are built over a plug and then need filling and fairing before a paint finish.

Looking like a really interesting project - and about time the class had a new option for a production raceboat. Pretty happy we can take things on and raise the level of competition from where it is at the moment!

Having seen your last foray into 3c, I'll think I'll take a rain check on this one.

Still produced one of the most successful monohulls in Mobil 1 - and still competitive now, 10 years later. Also our monohulls are winning in France and Greece. etc etc

I will agree with that, being current owner of Adams boat, it is very competitive and very good in the rough.. Very solid build as well!!
