New Mosquito costing and sourcing information.

Being a one-design, not limited to a single builder, there is more than one way to obtain a new Mosquito. Every option is available from building the whole thing yourself starting with sheets of plywood or foam, right up to buying a new foam sandwich boat ready to race.

To discuss new foam sandwich hulls contact Philip Warren-Smith on 03 9898 6107 - after 9pm.

One advantage of the Mosquito is that it does cost less to put on the water than any other cat of similar performance. Add a spinnaker and the ride you get for your money is awesome.

The costs on this page are not terribly accurate - especially those in red. Please let me know if you can suggest more accurate figures.
