Default Carrera Powerboats' revival.

Wonder what the owners of the Picon era think about the revival of the brand. The Carrera Powerboats first model is the 320 Classic CC and a 260 Classic CC will be ready in a few months. Picon Sr. gave thumbs up and legend Estanislao Cortes, of Mirage fame, has actually hands-on helped out with bringing the boats into production. Very few modern hulls with 26-degree deadrise, so this is really epic imho.

Default This is a stepped version of the 32' 9.3" CC from 15 years ago.

Agree, the design is from 15 years ago at Carrera Powerboats and was called the Sport 32 CC. Definitely got the classic Cigarette 35 Awesome look. The only significant change I see is that it's now stepped. Beautiful lines though. Here's a 36 and 32 from those days.

I give them my full support! Wasnt able to be there the day Humberto was but was there the first day,
boats look awesome.. By the way its a 24deg V,the 32 is the 36 with a 4 ft plug ,the 27 and 30 were 25 deg,27 was
a 30 with a 3ft plug in the mold..All of them are from the original Picon molds,,the in between owners did not make
any bottom changes only changed the decks . I have the only original single stepped 32 and only a few 36 twin steps were made back then ,one of them being the 36 "El Nuevo Dia" which won multiple titles in PROA.
This is my GF and Me at first day of show with Carrera.
