    No, the base price is for the rigged boat, running, standing rigging and blades.

    Alright guys, Thanks again for "hanging in there" all this time until details were finished. Officially we are the distributor and operator of the VX Evo for the Americas, from Canada to the "Horn". We will be launching the newsletter soon, however this is not slowing things down anymore: the production slot with the builder has been allocated and we are expecting the first container under the new watch to arrive Mid December. Details, pricing and contact information here: Feel free to reach out to us at anytime!

    If the D-One was sailing with his largest sail at 11.5 Sq. Meters and you with you "A" sail, that is 1.3 sq meters less sail area on the VX Evo. Also the Gennaker on the Evo is a little smaller than the D-One's....interesting. Please keep sharing as you do more races, interesting to see that differential.

    Great input. Awesome way to describe it, thanks again for sharing. The VX Evo definitively fits those needs, specially when you like performance without the crashing!!

    Renting a RIB for Orange Bowl?

    You will be looking at around $350/day plus fuel.

    Glad to hear the video has helped you! We know is a long tutorial, but users can "fast forward" to the area they need or can watch the whole thing during a Sunday morning with coffee on hand. One of the key things about both, VX Evo and VX One are exactly that:elegance, while still a sport boat, which tends to be hard to achieve. Kudos to the designers, Brian Bennett and Rodger Martin for hitting it right! For the sake of letting the community know more about the VX Evo, can you share what have you sailed before the VX Evo?

    bibs, Just closed another order for a boat going to Lakewood yacht club (Houston area). At the moment, we have "two active" fleets: Texas and South Carolina, with individual boats scattered in Arizona, New York . A container scheduled to arrive here in mid October and we are looking for more push. We have been somewhat "shy" on the information stream as we are almost ready to launch a new distribution channel and a couple of changes on how to sell, deliver and grow the class. Good things about to happen with this little rocket. Sushi is right. We should have more solid news tomorrow. Hang in there guys. We are thankful for the follow up and good energy behind the VX Evo.

    Sorry if I missed you at Rush Creek this past weekend. I spent both days working on a boat on C Dock. If you are near Lake Lewisville (Frisco, Plano, McKinney, Little Elm), for sure, DCYC (Dallas Corinthian Yacht Club, is the best option. They do have a 3 boat VX Evo fleet and soon more boats will be added. Rush Creek is great and it is my home club, yet is about 60 miles away for you. at 200 lbs, the laser and the Aero start to get small. Even though the the price may be a little over $10K, you get a lot more boat for the Evo and it is simply insanely fun for a non foiling boat, and in fact more fun that a lot of foilers out there. Rigging time is minimum and the form stability allows you to sail it in ver wide range of wind strengths. Here is a video of what the VX Evo looks like: Also, there is one for sale used in Ohio. I am checking in the price and will publish it here:

    Probably the best way to describe it.
