PS2000 has added two overseas licensees of its Byte World Youth boat. Sailboats Enterprise of Singapore is licensed to build for SE Asia and is having an incredible success in that market. It is not surprising given the fact that the boat caters very well to the lighter Asian sailor. The other builder is Nautivela S.R.L of Milan, Italy, www.nautivela.com, the foremost world builders of the International 420 and 470 and also builders of a very highly rated IOD 95 Optimist. They do not have a follow-on boat to the Optimist and will now aggressively market the Byte to the post Opti market in Europe.
In 2002, PS2000 is adding an IOD 95 Optimist to its line of boats and has elected to market the top selling Optimist in SE Asia - the Xtreme Optimist by Sailboats Enterprise (see Optimist home page)
We are just completing our tooling for a Class-legal Club 420 built to the Rules, Plans and Specifications of the North American Club 420 Class. The only other C420 Class legal boats are built in the States by Vanguard, who developed and promoted the Class so effectively in the US, and Catalina on the West Coast. The pre-production boats will be sailed and demonstrated at clubs this summer with full production to be in place for 2003. Clubs interested should contact us if they are interested in trying the boat.
