This is not the total of all our cars sold, some customers have bought more than 1 Dutton, some repeat orders and many are sold into the same location
We will never disclose customer names or addresses so please don't ask!!!!
We are now accepting orders for Late Summer 2014 delivery
We are quite happy to accept a deposit and incomplete order form as a firm order so you can get a production "slot", final spec can be added closer to the delivery date
APPROXIMATE DELIVERY:- Kits 7 weeks, fully built cars 12 weeks
We attempt to keep some deck/hull in stock so if you order in these colours the following delivery times can be reduced by:-
THIS IS IMPORTANT:- if we quote a waiting time from a general enquiry it is only valid at the time we quote, waiting times can easily vary drastically depending on pressure of work
For the first time ever we have managed to catch up with orders and now have some cars in stock see "new - used" page
|The IVA test|
We cannot stress enough the importance of the IVA test and not just from the legal point of view - it also shows that the car has been assembled to the highest Government standards. If you buy an amphib from a company who has not got a car past the test you will NOT be able to use it on the roads, also attempting to sell the amphib on will prove almost impossible. It's a good idea to ask to see an IVA test certificate from a manufacturer prior to purchasing
Good news for Dutton customers, we have now had the Surf put in a different IVA testing category which reduces the government fee from £450 down to £199, this is now reflected on our order form.
|UK Boat Safety Scheme|
We automatically build all our amphibs compliant with the UK BSS and can supply your Surf with a BSS certificate if required. To comply with the BSS the following extras are supplied and fitted:- 2 off fire extinguishers (5A/34B) battery master switch, fuel cut off tap and all necessary signage. The price on the order form includes these plus the cost of the certificate
|Small Ship Register|
Our vehicles are eligible for Small Ship Registration if required.
|WHERE ARE THEY ALL?|
There are only 3 important kit car magazines in the UK and Europe:- Complete KitCar, Total Kit Car and KitCar
All 3 have tested the Surf during 2011 and given us fantastic complimentary write ups. The question is why are there not ANY write ups or videos on any other make of amphibious car? It's all very strange.....
Complete KitCar (March 2011), Total Kit Car (July/August 2011) and KitCar (September 2011) are all on our "press comment" link below.
As part of our continual commitment to customer service we now offer check ups on all our amphibs, including an extended water test. After the testing we will advise if any work/servicing needs doing. You can at any time remove your car or in the alternate you can authorize us to do all or some of the work. Now is also a good time to do the compulsory checking of the front and rear brake systems and paint the underside metal parts that may be scratched or have surface rust. If you are interested in our servicing then please email us, we can collect cars if required or arrange for them to be collected from anywhere in the world.
