Cape 31 - Progress

Cape 31 - Progress

27/09/2017
from Carbotech, was appointed to build the Cape31 locally.

Input was gathered from those that had sailed Flame, and it was decided to make some minor changes.

Prior to construction of boat #2, the deck mould was retooled to accommodate:
1) A sliding hatch,
2) A new, simplified mainsheet pod
3) A new companion-way hatch incorporating the jib up/down control system.

This pushed back the launch schedule by 3-4 weeks. To date hulls # 2, 3 & 4 are sailing with hulls # 5 and 6 due to launch in the next weeks, and production for 7 & 8 following asap. The construction time is between 3-4 weeks per boat.

Hurricanes in the USA have caused some minor material and equipment supply issues, but plans are being made to fast-track delivery.

Pricing News

We recently received news that Southern Spars Cape Town will be closing down and the price of the rigs is increasing. This is unfortunate.

However, we have managed to negotiate that the next three rigs will be built at the current price.

The next three South African boat orders (ie hull 9, 10 &11), if ordered before December 2017, will be kept at the same discounted price of R1.75 mil. plus vat (excluding sails, electronics and safety items).

These boats will be due for launch in March, April & May 2018.

As before, clients can take advantage of any discounts that Noordhoek Sailboats receive in sourcing sails, electronics or safety items.
