L'attuale produzione di imbarcazioni a vela si estende dalla piccola deriva sportiva al regata-crociera di 38 piedi… in ogni caso legate da un stile di costruzione tipicamente artigianale, dove l'armatore può veder nascere il proprio il prodotto e scegliere le varianti che preferisce, creando col cantiere situazioni lavorative che rendono ogni barca migliorata e unica.

Chris Somner Dinghy Services

bblogosomner.gif










I started boat building in 1998, working for Bob Hoare Ltd, building Contenders and Poole AB’s whilst undertaking a City and guilds in Yacht and Boat building which I completed in 2003. I then left Bob Hoare Ltd and joined Latham’s Boatyard repairing wooden yachts and involved in running the office until April 2006 when I set up my own business building and repairing dinghies and small yachts.  Since taking over the moulds in 2006 from Bob Hoare Ltd we have made a few changes to the way that the boats are built.  We have changed the core thickness, increased the number and size of the stiffeners in the structure under the deck and modified the back of the mould to make producing the boats easier.

We can supply contenders in various stages of completion:
  • Contender ready to deck (composite) + measurement and sail numbers.
  • Contender GRP ready for fittings + measurement and sail number allocation.
  • Contender ready to race  including covers, trolley and sails.

We offer a comprehensive boat repair and maintenance service:
  • Wood and fibre glass hulls. We are an approved insurance company repair centre.
  • We offer a foil making and repair service.
  • Sail repairs can also be undertaken working with one of our partners.

New Builder in UK

goslinglogo.jpg

gosling1.jpgGosling Dinghy Craft Limited are NEW licensed builders in the UK, with over 32 years of boatbuilding experience. Kevin Gosling (proprietor and principal builder) has built for numerous classes including OK, Fireball, Merlin Rocket, Scorpion and Solo, with the most recent being the Contender.

With the NEW Contender, the composite construction has been proven to be very strong with the more conventional sapele looking deck, thus maintaining the Contender Classic look. To achieve this Kevin has worked along side one of the best Dinghy Designers in the country, Phil Morrison to produce a quality product. For further details contact:
