Laser Performance Website

Thread starter #1
Can any one explain why, if you go to the laserPerformance website at and the click on the Australia bit, does it redirect you to a Dart Sailboats site which sells a lot of products branded under the Laser name in Europe and America eg Laser Pico, Laser SB3 but seem to be sold as Dart products in Australia? Most interestingly however, not the Laser itself, which is of course made and distributed by Performance Sailcraft Australia at .

Is there no longer any unity between the various Laser manufacturers around the world?
From what I understand, Performance Sailcraft Australia own the trademark for Laser in Australia, so laserperformance had to use the Dart name over here to sell the boats they manufacture in USA/Europe as Laser products.

They are different companies and are competing in the Australian market
