Default Ultra to launch a 32' cat

This just in from the boss for all you cat fans


It's official. We decided to hold off on tooling the 27 FC and go straight to tooling a 32. Tooling started last week. We are going full throttle on this project in order to have one in time for the LA show 2008. This will be a true tunnel, 10' beam, 32' length, full single canopy, full inner liner boat. I will have the drawings and prints online this week.

Hey baller Im waiting on your deposit to start yours. The first one is still looking to be the LA show but $ down could have it to you the next week after the show.

We played it safe and stuck around the house for the 4th.

here is the latest bit of info on the project I should have pics soon from the boss to share with everyone.


from JW

"32 will be the full length. Running surface just over 30. Think of it kind of like a 30 Skater with kind of an MTI back on it. We are now doing a lot of one off custom tooling. So anything is possible for finished styling. We do offer front and back cap, as well as full cap. Yes, it is being designed to accept 6 drives.

Lay up will depend on what the customer wants. We can do a standard wet lay, vaccum bag, pre preg epoxy, or resin infusion. We have done aout five times as many resin infused boats as any West coast custom builder has done, so we're pretty good at it.

The full canopy will be a lot like the one going on our 26 Steatlh. The same company makes our canopies that did the 388 Skater canopy.

We will have a poker run edition available. Most people are showing interest in having the driver/throttle man configuration with the buckets together and throttles in the middle.

Most will be set up as a "fast" cat style, but we will build whatever the customer wants. So some mid cabin seats. porta potti, bed, set up will be offered too.

It will be able to run in the ocean.

We will only be able to build about ten of these a year. So we will have one team of riggers dedicated to rigging just the 32. we also have not ruled out selling this model in stages to certain clients. "

Will this be a true tunnel (no pod)?

While it may be able to run in the ocean, will it be able to run in waters of the Pacific Ocean, say...around Ventura?

I think that would be a tall order for most builders!!
