NEW, FASTER, BUILD SCHEDULE FOR POPULAR RAYGLASS 3500
Posted By Rayglass | November 28, 2018
Those wanting to own a new Rayglass 3500 will now be able to get into their new cruiser much sooner thanks to the addition of a new manufacturing facility and increased production.
Rayglass sales director Scott Little says the new facility and faster production means people ordering a new 3500 early in 2019 will now be able to take delivery in plenty of time for the start of the 2019/20 boating season.
“It also means we will be able to satisfy the steadily increasing demand for the popular new cruiser,” he says.
“Kiwis are increasingly being exposed to the Rayglass 3500 out on the water, in popular anchoring spots and alongside them in marinas — and they are really liking what they are seeing.
“They are also getting the chance to talk with current 3500 owners and discover just how much they love the sedan style cruiser’s single level living, practical layout and spacious saloon, along with its great handling in both rough and smooth water.
“Owners are constantly telling us — and their friends — that they also love having all the features and feel of a much bigger boat in such a compact, easy-to-handle and economical package.”
Scott Little says those thinking of ordering a new 3500 should do so as soon as possible, especially with the next America’s Cup fast approaching.
“Emirates Team New Zealand is due to launch their revolutionary new boat in mid-2019 and we know, from previous experience with America’s Cups held in Auckland, that as soon as that happens demand will increase again.”
A sophisticated modern take on the much loved traditional Kiwi sedan cruiser, the Rayglass 3500 has found wide appeal with professionals, couples with young families and those keen on sportsfishing.
Powered by twin Mercruiser 260hp inboard diesels, it has the range and handling to cater to those who like to cruise or fish well offshore. Features such as an aft galley capable of servicing both the large saloon and those in the cockpit; U-shaped lounge with great all round visibility; island transom with functional seating, barbecue and live bait tank; large open cockpit with big duckboard and comfortable foredeck sun lounger, with recessed drink holders, mean it also finds plenty of favour with families and those who love to relax and entertain.
