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 Kit-Built T*Boat. We are presently in transition to a new model - The T*Six-2.
The boat you see on the website now is the T*5 (fifth generation). The Plans for this version are still available, but the Kits no longer are. (Jump to: Order Plans Page)
However, some weeks from now we will be introducing the new T*Six Kits . The T*Six's will be a Kit-Build Only Boat (no scratch build plans available) and feature a new interior structure and some changes to the exterior lines. These new T*' Kits will be lighter, easier and faster to assemble, and incorporate new features and options.
The first T*Six Version to come out will be the T*Six-2 (a two person version) and it should be priced at something just over $500. Following the T*Six-2 we will release the T*Six-1, a one person version based on this same new interior structure. It should be priced at around $450.
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 development, drawings and instructions development, performance verification, and supply 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 of this year 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 versions ready.
