I concur with Thomas regarding his assessment of Beyond, as much as I'd like to see her sail again.  Keep us posted with your plans and progress.

  • I do have some options around here:
    - There is an owner build Didi Mini Mk1 (Plans by Dudley Dix, for sale on the web) for sale about 2h drive from where I live for $11.111 (9750 euro) with an as new carbon mast and boom. Those 2 part alone would be close to the asking price. (http://www.e-y-n.com/boat/~2637.general.html?lang=2)
    It has a few spots the epoxy seems to be delaminating from the deck, but the plywood seems to be okay.
    - There is a Lombard Zero (production boat) for sale by a fellow Belgian for just under $16k ...
  • You can see the Mini at their website (http://coconuts.is/), it is actually a Guillaume Verdier design, but Guillaume works (mostly) for VPLP.

My suggestion is to go with the Didi Mini if you're looking for a fun boat to build, it will be at about the same level as the Zero or an unproven, damage proto shipped from the US.


As for Guillaume, the times of working mostly for VPLP are certainly over.

I emailed Chris to see if he minded me passing along his info.  I guess you could cut the keel and then weld it later, but that would be a question for Chris.

He went cedar because he said that it was stiffer than aluminum while being lighter.  RE: the shipping woes, Yes it would prove problematic to ship her in one piece but, depending on your expertise, you might try and remove the keel?  LinkedIn was how I was able to get in touch with Chris, but I don't know what he has for plans and such.  Happy to help get her to you...my interest in purely academic at this point as the broker doesn't seem to want to discuss the price.  I have ENOUGH incomplete projects, most of which are boats.   ;D
I didn't see an official VPLP mini...is this the same design as Arkema 3?

  • Any Mini should normally fit in a 40' Sea Container, in the very worst of cases in a 40' Hi-Cube container, if tilted at the right angle which explains the need for a custom made cradle, and it a bit of a precision job.
  • Still no Reply from / Connect with Chris
  • I doubt I'll take her, though I'm still waiting for a quote to have her shipped, if extremely interesting maybe ... very maybe.
    So normally the keel doesn't need to be removed, but if need be I would assume from the information you proved one could cut the lower half and keep the support structure intact.
