"Hi Alberto I built a smaller dinghy out there to establish the availability of decent materials, and labour.  I found both to be a struggle in the area I wanted to build (Sta Ana, Cagayan Valley). In the end, I decided not to build, but…"

"Peter, Good day.  Was just curious on how your build went?  I'm actually thinking about doing the same thing.  Moving to the Philippines to build a Tiki 38.  Any advice for me? Best regards Alberto"

Early Plans Tiki 38/46


I am at the very early stages of planning my build.  Having looked at second hand options, together with many designs (including Dudley Dix, Schionning) friends in the UK and boat building group in the Philippines independently recommended the Wharram designs.  

My sailing interest originates from competitive dinghy sailing from early teens, but I have recently completed the RYA Dayskipper program on 36ft monohull.  

Cruising grounds in the Philippines…

Good day Peter

Well so you have still some time to make decisions. My boat was built by one of the best professionals you can wish; by Gunther Nutt of Seascape, Phuket. WaveDancer is on the hard in Phuket for the time beeing, since I have no time for sailing or cruising. Apparently we try to sell her in Phuket since we have some other plans for sailing whithin the Philippines and the Pacific with a even more polynesian style boat. We (me and my GF) just bought a house in Cebu City and I will moove my activities there after August 2014. Sorry so we'll miss your visit to Cebu. Do you have a particular budget for your build? Yes it is true to find quality materials in the Philippines is costly and usually linked to some extended resurches and time cunsuming. Imports are costly as well. On the other hand to import a boat can be risky since there are no clear regulations regarding importtaxes. Also you have to consier the often very humid climate which is not in favour of epoxy-works.

What kind of sailing or cruising plans do you have? Island hopping? Daysailing? Live on board? Extended cruising? How much comfort do you need? Does your Filipino-Partner like sailing as well. Sailing in Philippines is often rough! I'm lucky my GF feels comfortable on a boat and she would follow me on any on my adventures this is a important aspect. 

How ever would be nice hearing from you and your Progress again...

All the best - Wave
