It's no longer a case of a maker saying our boat can handle 150hp or whatever.
What was acceptable 10 years ago when certain ranges were ce'd may not be acceptable now as the rules may have been different
I guess we should wait and see before being concerned over build quality at this stage

Yeh I realise there are plenty out there but it's not only length that is considered. Also is it possible new ranges need to work to newer rules to obtain CE approval where previously approved ranges worked to earlier less onerous rules? Your 2014 build may have been approved in 2004
I don't know but think it's unfair to jump to the conclusion that the build is inferior at this stage

Kraken 5.8m - what's included...

All our boats are made completely in our factory so we have full control over the quality and design.

Included in the £10,495 inc VAT price is the following spec for the Kraken 5.8m

- Deep V hull

- Kraken Logo

- Tube Protection boarding patches

- D Section rubbing strake

- Looped lifelines

- 4 handles fixed to tubes

- 5 compartment tube

- Rear deck well

- Drain trunk

- Oars x 2 plus oar holding blocks fixed to tubes

- Non slip deck

- Steering

- Padded steering wheel

- Jockey console, back rest with 2 hatch panels.

Fabrics for tubes can be either Polyurethane or Hypalon although we do recommend Polyurethane due to it being 10x more scratch resistant than Hypalon and will look good for much longer.

Tube fabric comes in a wide range of colours and boarding patches are usually in a contrasting colour. We currently have Orange, Black, Blue, Yellow, Grey, Military Green & Panna White.

Rubber fittings are all black and fibreglass colour options are also varied with White, Orange, Grey and Black being most people's preference but we can make to your specific colour if required.

We also supply Outboards and Trailers and have a wide range of extras that can be applied to your boat if desired such as*

- Fitted aluminium fuel tank

- Upgraded steering*

- Stainless steel handle fitted to console

- Under deck loom

- Additional seating

We also can source anything else you may need. Just let us know.

All the best,

Garreth Millett

Sure the price is for Hypalon or PU tubes. The fuel tank fits into the console and has 100 litre capacity.
