FAQs

There are a few Optimist builders. Which one is best?

Fundamentally, questions like this on a kids boat are one of the reasons we're so opposed to it being used. Kids 7-12 should be out having fun, learning about the sport and growing their skills. Instead, we force them to race a certain way, in a slow, complicated boat, with a coach always by their side. And then the manufacturers get to promote every little detail that makes their boat slightly better than others. If you have to get an Opti, McLaughlin and Zim make great boats. Pick one, order it and move on.

Boat Delivery is going to be expensive, isn't it?

Despite their size, we are able to ship most boats around North America safely and inexpensively. While boats don't qualify for free shipping, we do subsidize the cost for each customer to keep it reasonable. To see your exact cost, add a boat to your cart and it will show an exact flat rate cost as you checkout. Typically, small boats ship for $300-$600, medium sized boats ship for $400-$800, and larger boats, such as the RS Venture or RS21, ship for $700-$1200.
