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.
PRIVATE LICENSE: INDIVIDUALS & HOME BUILDERS also enter into this licensing agreement to the extent of receiving a Hull Identification Number and Certificate of Authenticity for each boat built. 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 your boat is legal.
OWNERSHIP OF PLANS – Unless otherwise agreed to by Trident Welding in writing the Owner is authorized to build only one vessel from the design. Drawings and Specifications as instruments of service are owned by and shall remain the property of the Designer. Additional hulls may be licensed for 50% of the original fee. Please contact us regarding additional builds prior to use of the files so that we may authorize use and issue licensing documents.

All computer files such as CNC Nests, AutoCAD Drawings, must be deleted upon completion of the vessel.
