Buying

To purchase a Shaw 650 sailboat, there are three options - unique in the world of sportsboats:

1. Buy a new Shaw 650, we build new glass boat for you.

2. Purchase a used Shaw 650

3. Buy a set of boat plans and build your own Shaw 650
 

We handle the first option, but from time to time can advise on second hand boats available. For home builds, plans are $1,000 NZD and available from us or from Rob Shaw, www.shawyachtdesign.com

To purchase, we provide the boat in the specification you require, delivered to either our dealer or owner representative (in areas where dealer is available) for your pick up, or for delivery to an agreed local port.

SHAW 650 PURCHASE PROCESS

We will send you the Purchase Agreement for your signature and when you return the agreement and transfer a refundable $1,000 deposit to our account, the purchase process commences. All purchases are protected by Thailand Consumer Law, and we happily supply a list of owners in your area to discuss any concerns of items you may wish.  We can customise the package you wish to receive; if you wish to set up the deckgear yourself, or want to handle deckgear fitting, or have a graphical look like no other…we can do it….ask to find out more!

Construction of your sailboat commences with signing all agreements and payment of 35% of the total purchase value to our account and agreed delivery date.

Approximately 6-12 weeks later, you will be required to make a further payment of 35% of the total purchase value to our account 7 days prior to the boat being shipped from our factory in Thailand.  Shipping will be billed to you separately with payment due prior to arrival, typically this is around 4,000 – 8,000USD complete, depending on the delivery location, including charges of inspection and so forth.  In the event that 2 boats are delivered together, we will introduce you to eachother, and expect that as 'neighbours' you will be able to reach some agreement on who will act as consignee.

The final 30% will be paid when the container arrives in your local port a few days prior to you taking possession of your brand new Shaw 650. Note, you will also need to prepare payment for the duty and GST upon arrival; we supply you all documents for this.  In markets where we have an owner rep, you may also enjoy their service to take care of these for you (but you will obviously still have to pay for it).  A 1 year limited warranty covers construction and materials.
