WELCOME TO SHAW 650

Welcome to www.Shaw650.com, the home of one of the world's fastest production 6.5m sportsboats!

The Shaw 650 created by Designer Rob Shaw is a lightweight design that is easily driven, with lower sheet loads, easier planing and easier transportation. If you want to combine outstanding downwind performance with a boat that is rewarding and enjoyable sailing around any race course, we've got the answer to keeping up with the fleet (or leaving the fleet behind).  Our production Shaw 650 is fast, affordable and fun, to find out more about our design you've come to the right place!

The Shaw 650 already offers class racing in Australia, and has growing fleets in Thailand, USA, NZ and Switzerland.  We are the only sportsboat class that both offers production boats as well as actively supporting home builds, with plans available and one design rules developed to encourage home builds to race against glass boats.  Production Shaw 650s offer high quality with performance to match.

Shaws Perform in Mooloolaba Winter Nationals 2014

The fleet of 6 Shaw 650s showed up ready to race, at the Winter Nationals, a 3 day event held in the open seas of Mooloolaba, and one of the largest sportsboat fleets ever assembled to date. Once again David Ellis in The Stig's Audi Cousin (we never get sick of that name) showed consistency and ability to stay on the right side of the light conditions, ending up 2nd overall in the 30 boat fleet. "The regatta was a lot in the 5-8 knot range which is obviously sub planing for the Shaw 650, but despite that I think we showed that the Shaw is still very competitive in the light stuff, and doesn't just need the 12 knots+ planning conditions to be on the podium," he explained to us after the race.
