Shaw 650 sports boat …… I’ll have one please Santa come Christmas time

The Shaw 650 is an amazing boat from deep south – taking off from where the SB23 and others led before …

A sportboat is a performance day sailor designed for performance, safety and stability. The Shaw 650 brings speed to more people, with maximum performance at this size, combined with affordable pricing. Lightweight and well mannered, easy planing and easier transportation – this is the answer to performance one design racing.

  • Fast: one of the quickest sportboats in this size, competitive in keelboat, sportboat and OD fleets
  • Affordable: highest levels of specification and construction at a reasonable price, with long term value thanks to NZ technology and expertise in construction and high quality parts
  • Fun: easy to sail, low sheet loads, easy to rig and transport

Every boat features the same high quality of construction which has been created by marine professionals in New Zealand most of whom also own or race Shaw 650s themselves.

It’s around $50 000USD so out of my price range but looks like a good option for entry into this market …. here is a video of it going though the paces
