New boats

If you are looking for a new set of foam-sandwich Mosquito hulls or a beamed-up platform talk to Philip Warren-Smith (03 9898 6107 after 9pm) or Chris Trewern (0409 171 155) to see what options are currently available to you.

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 set of hulls and getting a rigger to set them up ready to race.


The figures on this page are mostly guestimates - especially those in red. Please let me know if you can suggest more accurate figures.
