Klaus Metz is actually a pretty good dude and has designed some quite nice stuff. That MeTu 650 has to be one one the most meticulous plywood boat builds I’ve ever seen - the detailing and thought that went into it - took something like 4000h maybe more... guy worked full time on it in a garage/warehouse here in Zurich. 

Klaus built the nesting dinghy to car-top to Croatia. Seems to be pretty good. still 50kg, though...

There will be 2 carbon dingys available before Xmas. No idea if they will be selling any though.

One is a Townsend around 8ft by the looks, the other a awesome 7ft pram bow sailing ding.

The roller reefing mainsail with the vertical battens looks nice, as well as the extra 12" of hull length.  The PT-11 is really too small to get two normal size people in there when sailing. I wish the Mebo-12 didn't come with such a weight penalty (50kg hull and 64 kg all up). Judging from the other designs, he knows how to design a good hull form for sailing.

Anyone have one have one?
