Whisper Boats promotes the family of boats designed by Derek Ellard of Scruffie Marine in Australia. The boats can be supplied as ready to assemble kits for home building or at any stage of completion, including fully customised finished boats.

The range comprises five designs with common family values. Lightweight and strong, the boats have fixed long keels, shallow draft and traditional flexible rigs making them easy and satisfying to sail. A strong interlocking plywood framework and precision pre-cut components mean they are easily and quickly built at home. Whether you choose to build yourself and add value, or specify what you want and have it built for you, the boats are strong and durable with minimal maintenance. All are trailable and all are suitable for electric auxiliaries.

We have recently added an Image Gallery section to web site - it features still images of all of the boats on the water. There is also a growing selection of videos available to watch on YouTube - please click here to watch the videos.

We will also be adding a Brokerage section where we will occasionally have boats for sale. As part of this extension to our web site we will also be re-vamping our Club Pages - so that is even easier to watch the build progress of several boats.

Please be pateient and come back often to monitor progress.
