For Sale – Shaw 650 – Monkey Business


The most fun you can have on a sports boat without racks,a high speed, lean machine and the best bang for buck you’ll ever buy.  Designed by Rob Shaw and one of the original unitech builds, Monkey Business is well known (be green, be seen) and one heck of a lot of fun. Able to keep pace with later generation sportsboats as well as be competitive on handicap, she is also able to outstrip much bigger boats. She has been well cared for with a complete rig service, new halyards and new Harken blocks last year, TLC as necessary and upgrades made in a few areas. Glass, cedar, and carbon in places construction, full carbon rig, brolga turnbuckles and is generally in excellent racing condition.

A turn key entry for the ASBA NSW state titles at the end of the month!

Selling due to spending too much time doing this offshore sailing malarky.
