You may have the V5 version which is a bit cheaper. The V6 is newish I believe.

 

I'm told the difference is 2 mins with a 3mm drill bit to open something up and the colours...Oh and the sails maybe a hint lighter cloth. A enthusiastic punter of mine in Chch has both versions, reckons they are the same speed.

All assembled.

Far from hard but did come with a few expletives as my kiwi lad fat fingers had to deal with the 0.6mm sheets and back stay.

Very good clear instructions.

Everything you need is there bar some superglue, small needle nose pliers and 8 batteries.

 

A well thought out and made package for the cost. Had I got the boat and assembled it prior to knowing the cost I'd be picking at least double what I paid. 

 

2 more been ordered and rumour of 3 others.

The Bayswater combined Beer drinkin and DF65 racing Championships are not far away now :)

The ones just ordered are $20 cheaper each, inc delivery.

No idea why except these are black hull where the 1st one was white.

Hope you didn't do what we did and order 2 at once. Alone they were under the gst threshold but together they were over. Wasn't so worried about the money but it held them up by about a month.
