This is a Large-scale semi-Custom half hull model of the Optimist dinghy. The model scale is 12.5 / 100. The model is built with gel coat and a few layers of 2oz fiberglass.  The model is assembled from 3 different parts - a hull, a rudder, and a dagger board.   It could be built with a cockpit, but adding the cockpit will increase the expense.  I decided to use one part female mold for the hull.  I hope you like the model and its' price.


This model is still semi-custom. I will paint the model any color you would like and if you have any logo or letters on your boat, I will order the letters and place on the hull. ( I need to have inf. from you and I will outsource the logo or letters)

The backboard will be 24" x 12" x 1/2" MDF with the exotic face veneer of your choice. ( Mahogany, Teak, Bubinga,  Maple etc..)
