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.

Super Deal - Stock Clearance DIY

If you have always wanted a Shaw 650, but haven't known how to buy one, then today is your lucky day.

Marking a new strategy which aims the boat at a guy (or girl) that likes to run lines, glue stuff and generally muck around boats, we are now offering the Shaw 650 as a ready to sail package, with some set up.

Boat package

- complete hull and decks, EVA deck, most deck fittings fixed in place

- coiled control lines, sheets, etc ready to lash on

- road trailer and packing materials

- foils package

- rig with fittings and rigging wire ready to swage and set up

- basic sails package included (main, jib, kite) - may be ex demo lightly used

Basically, we have had people asking how to buy cheaper...this is our solution.  Boat arrives in a container to your port, and you put in about 2 days of work to get things sorted as you like them.  Dead simple!

Special freight on board price ex Laem Chabang: $30,000 USD / $34,000 AUD / $34,000 NZD / $30,000 EURO / $30,000 CHK. 

On top you will need to pay shipping (around $6,000 USD per boat) and any relevant duties upon arrival (depends on the country, anywhere from 0% - 20% depending on the location - we can advise how much.  Order 2 boats....and the shipping cost halves!!!

On top you will have a few costs here and there for set up, or maybe you can do the work yourself. 

In either case....isn't this the boat you have been waiting for?
