T*Boat: The Showboat Slow Boat
Thanks For Dropping By!
I'm Larry Burnett, designer of the T*Boat. I appreciate you taking the time to get to know the T* a little better. It is a great project and a great little boat - and getting better all the time.
And, in that interest, I hope you will forgive our brief pause in the availability of the T*Boat. We are presently in transition to a new model. The boat you see on the website now is the T*5 (fifth generation). However, some weeks from now we will be introducing the T*Six replacement for the T*5.
The T*Six's will feature a new interior structure and some changes to the exterior lines. These new T*'s will be lighter, easier and faster to assemble, and incorporate new features and options.
The first T*Six out will be the T*Six-2 (a two person version). Following the T*Six-2 we will release the T*Six-1, a one person version based on this same new interior structure.
Please bear in mind that the T*'s are a lot easier to build than they are to get ready for the marketplace. That preparation is a lengthy and painstaking process of design development, prototype building, kit parts identification and control preparation, drawings and instructions development, and fulfillment preparations.
So, all of that to say this, the release will happen before the first of the year - the Lord willing. But, in all honesty, it is difficult to predict just exactly when in the last quarter that will occur.
However, if you would like us to email you when the new T*Six-2 is ready for your consideration, we are happy to do so. Just contact us below and let us know.
And thanks again for your interest in the T*Boat and for your patience as we get these new models ready. For now, even though the T*5 Kits can no longer be ordered, all other visible pages and elements of the website are entirely active.
Also, the website is still great for general information about the T*'s. And certainly, we are actively monitoring and responding to all contacts, and fully supporting current T*5 Builders - as always.
*Pocket Yachts is our small company located in beautiful southern Arkansas, USA.
