Manufacturing stages of your Wimbi Boats® craft
It is more than a hundred or so qualified people throughout the world who shall be taking part in building your boat. Our Wimbi Boats® teams bring together many skills that range from research & engineering development to craftsmanship, with many parts of your unit being hand-made and hand-assembled, to technical engine assembling and piloting for sea certification trials.
A Wimbi Boats® model does not remain frozen in time since with every new feature available on the market, we instantly and continuously add improvements to our crafts.
We have a quality control tool which, from the moment it is designed on computer, launched and put onto its first sea trial, enables nearly 500 control points to be listed, photographed and recorded within a program. Thus each stage must be validated before the next.
Each Wimbi® is the only one of its kind and made to order based on your choice. Our building site always produces a safety stock of hulls in advance, allowing them to dry for as long as is necessary, then the assembly of your unit begins with your custom colors and options as soon as your order has been received. Delays depending on models vary between 3 and 4 months to which you must add approximately a 4 to 5 week delivery to the dealer’s or the closest logistics base we have near you, then a 2-week preparation for the engine part and sea trial before the keys are handed over to you. Furthermore, with the Wimbi Boats® brand witnessing significant growth with numerous orders coming in from the whole world and the launch of new models every year, we recommend that you order in advance, ideally near the end of the summer season, your future boat. You are thus advised to you plan your purchase and complete your order before the end of the year to serenely receive your Wimbi Boats® craft before the new season begins.
If you are more in a hurry, you may either check the availability of our second-hand Wimbi Boats® and thus enjoy for a first-time purchase a more attractive price range. You can also choose among our new models in stock, usually available in standard colours (white, grey or black) and with basic fittings, or even decide to rent a Wimbi Boats® craft.
