The Eider is a wonderful 17' 3" cabin sailboat. It is a great step up in size and function from the 15' Nancy's China.
Her small cabin has good room to sleep two with a bit of extra space for gear to be stowed and not have to be moved out of the cabin when the sleeping bags are unrolled.
The self-bailing cockpit allows her to live on her mooring throughout our rainy spring and fall (and all-to-often our summers as well).
The basic kit is enough to build the bare hull, ready for rollover
The price of an Eider basic hull kit is $4514. It includes 13 sheets of BS1088 marine ply, the construction jig, plans and assembly instructions. It is shipped on a 4' x 8' x 13" pallet weighing 1010#.
This basic hull kit does not include dimensional lumber or plywood for soles or cabin tops, as those are best fit on-site. It also does not include cloth or epoxy, we can provide pricing on request.
