Welcome to CKD BoatsWe offer a wide range of products and services in the marine industry.
CKD Boats specialise in developing Kit boats and supply CNC cut designs from as small as the Optimist Dinghy to as big as a 43ft Dix Design yacht and larger. The kits consist of either the basic materials to assemble just the hull and deck or a full package from the building materials right through to the mast, rigging and sails etc.
While timber and veneer prices remain fairly stable, the price of resin continues to soar. We envisage timber and Kit boat building will become more popular over the next couple of years.
The Optimist Sailing Dinghy is one of the most exciting self-build boats on the market, it is not too big and fairly simple to construct when in the kit form. This makes it a great family project to undertake. Once it is built it can be officially measured to fall into a world Optimist "class", this will allow the boat to sail in any optimist regatta in your country.
