Build A Merry Kit! Build for the sheer joy and personal satisfaction of creating something beautiful. Think of the satisfaction of saying “I built it myself” when someone else admires your creation. Build to learn how to build your own boat. Build to get a better boat - both lighter and stiffer ... a friend for years to come! Among the most precious of life’s experiences are the hours spent admiring one’s own work at the end of a day or the completion of a particularly challenging task.
The Boat in a box Merry Kits are precision machined with a state-of-the-art CNC robot. The Wherry Kits with computer designed finger joints eliminate uncertain scarfing and up-to-date stitch-n-glue assembly eliminates expensive, time consuming jigs. We do the shopping for you - the finest marine grade Okoume plywood (4mm planking/3 mm decks, 9mm frames), pattern grade Mahogany for gunwales and transom, silicon bronze fasteners, light weight fiberglass fabrics for inside taping and outside sheathing, are included. A well written, full color assembly booklet guides you every step of the way. Merry Kits can be assembled in about 50 hours or a dedicated month of part-time effort. Compared to “just plans” - you will save lots of time, build a smoother, fairer hull, and actually save money!
