Bladerider News - August 2007
July Production Boost
Our X8 boat builder McConaghy, are getting on top of things and have completed and sent another 13 boats in July taking the total number of boats delivered so far to 41 plus 3 prototype boats. Production rates are increasing and after September we will have not only cleared all our back orders as at the end of July, but we will also be at 20 boats per month production rate.
This means that any orders that we take now in August will be fulfilled in October to either get the end of the summer in the northern hemisphere or the start of the season down in the southern hemisphere. Orders for August are already going strong so get your orders in quick.
From October we will be shipping some of the boats in a containers to our depots in Melbourne, Hamburg and Los Angeles. The freight costs will be dramatically reduced compared to air freight and therefore these savings will be passed onto each customer that wants to place an order. However delivery by sea will take an additional 2 to 3 weeks on airfreight time. So if you can't wait, get your order in with us now, otherwise place an order with your reseller to have it delievered later this year. But be quick as there is only a limited number of boats that we can fit into a container!
More details on this coming soon!
