Default Latitude Powerboats - High Perf Center Consoles -anyone ever heard of them?

Stumbled across this article that was dated just a month ago:

..."the company, who to date has built more than 300 boats for such names as Apache Powerboats and New Tech Marine has issued another press release, this time disclosing that it has finalized the acquisition of a new 47' Offshore Center Console tooling from former Midnight Express owner Tom Mason."

http://www.marketwire.com/mw/release...ease_id=194961

This is thier website:

Tell me these don't look *exactly* like Powerplays.

Publicly traded company?

The 26 doesn't resemble a Powerplay.

Didin't I spot the "Advance" logo on the foot rests?

Never heard of them. There are many many CC builders most of us have never heard of in Miami. Next time you are down there just pick up all the free paper rags at the marine shops and talk to some of the guys there and you will find 20 or more small cc builder with 1 or 2 models in Miami. Most use splashed hulls and so forth or old 1 of unheard of race boat hulls or older 70-80's narrow beam V bottom fish boat hulls and they put a CC deck on it.

It states the owner of the company is Orlando Hernadez, isn't that the name of the Cuban baseball player? Looks like he has a boat for sale
