Ocean Marina Yacht Club - Shaw 650s in Thailand!

10 / 05 / 2011

Beck Shaw Boats are pleased to be delivering another 2 new Shaw 650s joining the original Thai Shaw 650 Pornstar, at Ocean Marina Yacht Club, Jomtien.

Theboats have been delivered and are now awaiting foils, rigs, sails and trailers for delivery.  This marks a new step forward for Thailand and one design sailing, following the success of the Platu fleet which were introduced in Thailand in the early 90s, and still race to this day.

 

As a modern sportsboat, set up with carbon rig, no backstay, asymetric kite and compact 4 person crew, the Shaw 650 has already created a strong local following with good results in both IRC and mixed sportsboat fleet racing.  Teams will be able to get onto the water via one off charters, long term lease or part ownership.  These options eliminate the hurdle of buying a boat outright, and also ensure the longevity of a locally based fleet.

A Jomtien based sportsboat circuit for the sportsboats including the OD Shaw 650 fleet is planned to launched in 2012.  It's been a while in coming....but now the boats are finally here!
