All done

Here's me giving her full throttle

Well she’s finished and if I don’t mind saying so myself it looks great. The client was delighted which is really all that matters. I am so impressed with how Ninigret handles, she will literally turn in just over her own length and at full throttle there is no, not a bit, of cavitation when she’s turned hard over and she feels solid ( there’s no fear of being tossed out of the boat). No wonder Ninigrets designer John Atkin built one for his retirement. A Ninigret would be your perfect day-boat or even tender to a larger boat. Powered by a 30 hp outboard motor in a well she is lightweight, stylish and blissfully quiet.

  2. I have been a huge fan of the Ninigret design since I first saw the plans about 15 years ago. It’s great to see someone building the design today, and you’ve done a great job with it — that is a beautiful boat. Thanks for publishing photos of the building process, the final result, and your thoughts along the way. Inspirational and informative.

    Thank you, and great job!

  4. Hello to Ireland,
    Congragulations for this phantastic boat. I wonder if there are people in Germany interested at a boat like this. Sadly, most of them go for plastic.
