Are you interested in competing in two World Championships within 6 months in your own boat and all shipping logistics taken care of?
This unique opportunity arises in 2017 as there will be two 29er World Championships being held within that timeframe – at Alamitos Bay Yacht Club in Los Angeles, USA from 29 July to 5 August 2017 and then at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club in Hong Kong from 2 to 8 January 2018. You simply arrive at the yacht clubs and your boat will be waiting for you, rig it up and go racing. We will ship, load and unload the containers and take care of all documentation.
This is a one-off proposal to purchase a new Ovington 29er (complete with new sails, rig, fibreglass foils and foilbag, top cover and trolley), have it shipped to the host club Alamitos Bay YC as part of the bulk shipment for July 2017, have it on-shipped to the Royal Hong Kong YC for Dec 2017, and then we can assist to have it shipped finally to Sydney, Auckland or Europe for collection by the owners.
We are offering the boats at a nominal 10% discount of Ovington Boats Export price (USD$10,800), that is USD$9,720, plus the cost of logistics from the UK to Long Beach, USA, plus the cost of logistics from LB, USA, to Hong Kong, plus storage in Hong Kong for 3 months. This offer does not include shipping from Hong Kong after the Worlds are completed, to your home port.
That’s an approximate figure of USD$11,565.00, for a completely new boat and all logistics to LA and Hong Kong.
All the boats will be shipped on one set of documents, so this offer is only open to those competing in BOTH the World Championships, as the boats must leave the USA to be on-shipped to Hong Kong as a condition of the proposal.
A deposit of 10% will secure your interest, refundable up until 28 February 2017, with full payment by 30 April 2017 prior to shipping. Contact Nicky Bethwaite direct on firstname.lastname@example.org for an order form or click here.
Sails – either as a complete suit or as separate items – are also available for purchase under this arrangement prior to the LA Worlds. They will be available for pickup and competition from the host club Alamitos Bay YC on the condition that they are exported out of the USA immediately after the regatta in the same container as the boats that are heading to Hong Kong. Then they will be available for collection again at the Royal Hong Kong YC in December 2017. The prices will be at a 10% discount of Ovington Boats Export price and there will be no freight costs as the sails will be in the same containers as the charter boats.
For any further inquiries, please email Nicky Bethwaite or call +61 (0) 414 901 309.
Charter boats will be available for the Hong Kong Worlds on a first come first served basis. The cost of chartering a boat will be USD$3,500. The boats will be new Ovington 29ers, complete, but without sails. The charter includes – fully fitted out hull, fibreglass foils, rudder stock/tiller/extension, mast/boom/spin pole, spinnaker sock, all rigging (but you may bring your own ropes) and beach trolley.
These charter boats will become available later in 2017.
