Wharram Builders and Friends

A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts

I am new to this Forum. I'd like some advise on places to sail. I'm of the opinion that to buy or build a boat in South Africa (where I reside) is probably not the best option. So I'm thinking of buying a boat somewhere nice and go sail there on holidays. Family should be able to come an visit, flying from South Africa

Your thoughts on this will be appreciated

Reading your question, I wonder if chartering maybe the best option for you. Just a thought
Thanks Brett. I'll look into that!

You can buy plans from Wharrams to build one!

We are so lucky, someone really good worked it out for us!

Yes, I have great respect for James Wharram

Hi Manie, i'm a South African living on the island Nosy Be, Madagascar. Built a 42ft Pahi 13 years ago and sailed it here from Cape Town.

You might like to talk to Gary in Richards Bay - he recently finished a 42 Pahi and wanting to sail here but still in RB till i think July_August.

Hope you get answers on costing as of recently.

Thanks for your response and info!
