Please Read Our "About Licensing" Post First
LICENSED BUILDERS: An individual, Limited Company, or Corporation who builds a boat, or boats, from our CNC Kits becomes a Licensed Builder in agreement with Metal Boat Kits. Whether a Private Builder or Commercial Builder a Royalty for each boat built is due upon commencement of each hull build. The license fee paid at the time of purchase is for the construction of ONE HULL ONLY. All subsequent hulls constructed require payment of 50% of the original licensing fee. Another HIN and COA will be issued for each hull upon receipt of the license fee. This must be done to ensure the boat is legal. Unlicensed boats will have a designers lien placed against them.
FRANCHISED COMMERCIAL LICENSE: Our Franchise License entitles the Builder free access to our **entire catalog (see note below) and Territorial Protection on all current and future designs in our catalog, as well as full Territorial Protection across all designs in the Builders Territory. The Franchised Builder pays a yearly flat fee for unlimited builds. We also include unlimited support and marketing including a full page dedicated to your company on our site. As well as greatly reduced rates for custom design, modifications, and marketing illustrations. For builders building multiple smaller boats or a few of our larger boats this is a great savings, not to mention having your own design department on call for things like marketing illustrations with your trade dress, and brochures etc.
