Please don't cross examine me on what I am about to say, I am not a business spokesperson for the company, just a local agent.
However, yes the 1000XL2 and the 1160 production is now in Seawind's factory in Vietnam, the build has not been outsourced to a yard in SE Asia
, its in a factory that Seawind owns and has its own senior staff. (The Corsiar production facility which Seawind bought last year along with the Corsair line of tri's). The corsairs have been built to an extremely high standard in this facility for some years.
The 1250 remains fully built in Australia and the 1000XL2 will be heavily commissioned in Australia. Seawind is still an Australian company and many of the senior people in the Vietnam facility are Australian. Seawind remains the biggest production sail boat builder
in Australia. Everything else remains the same, you buy a 1000XLs it will still be delivered to you at Seawind's brand new private marina facility in Rozelle in Sydney
. You have a question or a a need for service
its still your local agent and the service
manager in Bellambi that will resolve the issue.
Don't expect price drops, expect a company that remains profitable and continues to provide employment
to many people in the Wollongong area and elsewhere.
