World Affairs + Viper Pricing = Good News!

By Dan Tucker, Rondar Raceboats

You almost certainly heard the news on the morning of June 24th, that the United Kingdom voters narrowly chose to leave the European Union, the Brexit.  The British pound immediately dropped in value on the world currency markets as a result.  As you may also know, the Viper 640 is manufactured by Rondar Raceboats in England.

At Rondar, we have always chosen to maintain price stability in US dollars for the US market, absorbing minor currency fluctuations up or down, as the British pound to the US dollar has been quite stable. However, this currency adjustment has been an extraordinary event. As a result, we are offering a Brexit currency discount of $2500 off the already low GYA price for a new Viper.

This means you or your club may be able to purchase a brand new Viper 640, including sails, trailer, covers and more for as little as $30,791 US dollars!


Of course there is a catch… as we expect the British pound to rebound, we require that in order to take advantage of this discount, you must absorb the currency risk by pre-paying for your new Viper in full with your order. This Brexit currency discount is subject to change if the exchange rates do change appreciably, and we may revoke it entirely as conditions warrant. As you’re saving over $7000 USD from the full list price of new Viper, it seems a reasonable condition.
