Its under (actual) development as we speak. (Pat and Jay have cots at the factory. ) Two have been commissioned already. They are scheduled to be floating and running next summer/fall as 2008 models.

I have preliminary info back in my office.
9'3" Beam
Available with twins or trips.
Its going to be SICK with twin 700SCi/NXT1 drives.

Tell me what you want in yours B4M.

I'm the culprit. I never even thought about putting it on the website for some unknown reason.

I had the 33 up there for a year before I produced it. The 43 will go up next week.

We've made changes 3 times so far after initial design and feel that the next set of drawings are the last. Other than the hull transom area all changes have been in the deck. We are, for the first time, incorporating a swim deck in the transom but we are attempting to keep the boat with the traditional offshore look it is known for.

As far as the step the step, there's only one. And it's patented. The DDC. The thought naturally is since it's longer it needs more steps. That's not true however.

I might try and most the blue-prints. Or if nothing else I can upload them to the website and post the link. I know we have size limitations here.

Call me if you have any other questions!

Thanks, Pat

I am personally not a big fan of integrated swim platforms. It takes away from the lines and classic look not to mention true length...Bolt one on if you need it...
