48 years of Nylet racing yacht kits.
Nylet 'THETIS' IOM racing yacht available as kits, with various options.

'THETIS' (Greek goddess of water) is a new design in 2013 and having been on trials a season prior. The design performs well and is a very stable yacht which points well and is also fast on the run.
She handles well in most conditions encountered and can maintain position with her top rig until wind conditions really stiffen. When beating barely noticable weather helm is an aid to maintenance of a steady course. Hands off sailing shows her stable nature and she points closely. The hull shape pays dividends in the way she is quick to accelerate from a stand.

  • Available as a full kit with rig/s, all fittings, c.f. fin set, lead ballast, etc.
  • Available in semi-kit form (no rig, no ballast).

    Kit options can be found in the price list in section 8.
    GRP hulls are moulded in white, colours are to special order (at extra cost) - blue, orange, red, yellow, and black. Racing sails in recing scrim are made to order with corner 'patches' to the colour of your choice (see our range of Poly colours).
    Kits come with a fully illustrated stage by stage guide to building (normally sent as a pdf file).
    DIMENSIONS. LOA (Length) 1 metre, approx. beam 225mm.
    Semi-kits are designated thus to identify them on the UK postage rates page, as they attract a lower rate of post compared to kits having lead ballast and rig.
    ABROAD. Semi-kits can be despatched abroad, as indeed can full kits, but the lead ballast can be omitted (outside EC) due to risk of damage in transit.
    Outside the UK please ask for air carriage rates giving your exact requirements (kit part no.) and state zip code & country.
    For individual component parts such as c.f. fins & rudders, and fittings, see sections 2 and 3. Sails and rigs see sections 4 & 7.
    Building work to be done, and recommended tools: fin box and rudder post to be built in, and timber inwales and cross beams to accept deck, radio/winch platform to be constructed and fitted prior to fitting deck. You will need either a bench or a workmate, a small hobby vice, a hand drill or electronic drill, drill bits between 1mm and 2mm, a small hand file, a junior metal saw, small clamps suitable for use on glassfibre parts, and various glues and adhesives, epoxy etc (see building guide).
