Balmain Boat Company Sailboat Kit

By - July 8th, 2013

If our preview of the Omega Seamaster Diver ETNZ Watch, which is professionally tuned and designed for Emirates Team New Zealand ahead of the America’s Cup sailing race that began yesterday, has got you itching to tap into your inner Gilligan, then check out this nifty Sailboat Kit. Created by Balmain Boat Company, the kit is the perfect DIY project for anyone looking to impress their kid, girlfriend, or even their buddies thanks to their detailed step-by-step instructions and the fact that essentially all the pieces are included (save for paint and oars). The team says anyone with about 30 hours can tackle the project, resulting in a fully built sailboat measuring 9.8 x 4.3 x 1.7 and weighing in at 110 pounds. (That is, before you add in Tommy Boy wearing a grossly under-sized life-preserver.) All in all, a great project that will provide plenty of fun for anyone wishing to exercise their inner sea captain and Bob Vila. Available now via their online shop for $2,590 clams.
