Hi I have just come across the Daydream design and am interested in any plans or sketches etc that are available. There something infinitely charming about the boat I have seen here in North Haven, which is for sale, but I am only in Australia for a short while and don't think I can get the real boat in as hand luggage. I would be nterested in exploring the possibility of a UK build but would like to know more about the design before going further.

Many thanks

Chris.

G'day Chris, If you're still on this forum

I sail a Daydream out of Melbourne, and have plans.

What do you want to know?

No you can't have my plans :P

You could try all the old shipyards in Melbourne and see if anyone still has plans. Mine was built somewhere in Sandringham in the 60s.

If you're worried about carry-on luggage, the obvious solution is to sail it home

Hi. I have just bought a daydream in NZ and in the process of renovating. I am looking for anyone that has a daydream boat in Auckland or Whangarei that I could come and have a look at for ideas.
