Shaw 650 Sports Racer

The Shaw 650 is a one design high performance sailboat, It is a lightweight design that is easily driven, with lower sheet loads, easier planing and easier transportation. The Shaw 650 combines outstanding downwind performance with a boat that is rewarding and enjoyable to sail around any race course. It is the fastest keelboat in its size range (under 7m) with growing fleets in Thailand, Australia, Switzerland and USA. From the drawing board of outstanding New Zealand high performance yacht designer Rob Shaw, there are almost 20 Shaw 650s already racing around the world.

Each Shaw 650 is constructed to a strict process, using tight specifications and tolerances to ensure high quality and longevity. Construction uses vinylester resins with a gelcoat finish, and features a number of innovations ‘out of the factory’ to create a boat that is fast straight out of the box. This boat uses a twin spreader carbon mast from C-Tech (www.c-tech.co.nz) combined with light weight composite construction to achieve a total displacement of approximately 355kg including 125kg in the keel/bulb.

This boat is the newest (delivered December 2012) and most successful production Shaw 650 in Australia. Winner of Victorian (twice), Queensland (twice) and NSW State Titles. Runner up at the Winter and Summer Nationals and Winner at Festival of Sails

This boat features important upgrades from the standard production version including a C-Tech oval section mast, Brolga rigging turnbuckles and adjustable at deck level topmast stays. The boat is ready to hit the highway on its custom single axle trailer with a cover and comes ready to race with all safety equipment, outboard motor, Velocitek Pro Start, one mainsail, two jibs and two spinnakers from Doyle.

Currently stored on its trailker in a dry secure facility, this boat is a well optimised package and offers an opportunity to compete in the ASBA fleet at well under replacement cost.
