With the huge success of our Skookum 13 kit the design crew at RSR & Wattscraft NZ decided to redesign the original 3.3 Wattscraft Hull. The objective was to design a hull that would take customers back to the roots of mini jet boating. The hull is sharp, precise, and designed to utilize 3cylinder/4stroke/2stroke power plant packages. **Yamaha 1800cc engine does not fit well in this hull (please consider our
Skookum13 which was designed for the yamaha.
The Bantam is our most nimble handling hull to date. We spent a lot of time developing the hull, with a 14 degree dead-rise and aggressive chines the Bantam turns sharper than any other boat we have designed which makes it perfect for negotiating all kinds of water conditions.
In 2023 we have changed the Bantam to be more of a universal kit and will no longer include "power plant specific components". With this price reduction this is the "basic" kit you have been looking for!
Kits are cut, folded & rolled. Ready to weld with no jig required.
