Buying a New Laser - Frequently Asked Questions

As a Laser Performance authorised dealer Sailing Chandlery supply brand new Laser sailing dinghies in the UK.

We can supply the Laser 4.7, Laser Radial and Laser Standard MKII as a brand new boat, and we can customise boat packages to your exact needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you hold boats in stock?

No, we don't hold boats in stock in Essex. There is one simple reason behind this, and that's the sail numbers move too quickly with the number of Lasers produced daily. If we were to hold a boat in stock for a few weeks your new boat sail number could be behind by quite a number. Our experience is that customers want the latest number.

Boats are available within a few days so we won't keep you waiting too long.

How does a new Laser come?

New Lasers are delivered by Sailing Chandlery wrapped in plastic for protection, exactly how they come out of the factory. We also deliver all of the parts ready for fitting.

Please note, no cleats are added to the boat so you will need to start from a bare hull. If you would prefer we can set your boat up for you.

All other items such as the mast, rudder etc come packaged up in their original boxes.

How does Delivery work?

You can either collect direct from us in Essex from Laser Performance in Northampton or we can discuss delivery of your new boat direct to your door.

We'll arrange a time which is suitable for you so we can get you out and sailing as soon as possible.

What comes included with a new boat?

As standard a Laser comes with everything you need to go sailing, but not with a launching trolley or boat cover. We believe these are essentials for any new boat so have created our boat packages which include a launching trolley and boat cover as standard.

Can I add extras?

Yes, of course you can. Our experience tells us that all new boat customers have different requirements, whether it's adding a Radial rig as well, or maybe you would just like an undercover added.

We tailor every new boat purchase so just tell us what you need and we will be happy to provide a custom quote for you.

What extras might I need?

Popular items with our customers are:

  • MKII friction pad
  • Boat cover
  • Undercover
  • Foil bag
  • Spar carriers
  • Another size rig
  • Long sail bag
  • Road trailer
  • Zhik Grip II hiking strap

Let us know what sort of sailing you'll be doing and we can make recommendations.

Can I buy just a hull?

Yes, you can buy just the hull from Sailing Chandlery, we can provide a quotation, just give us a call.

Where can I find more information?

All of our Laser boats for sale are listed on our website, you can see the price of our boat packages there too.

I've got more questions, can you help?

Yes, it's probably best to give Andrew a call on 07793 953564 and he can help answer any additional questions you might have.
