Has there been a new Apache since the silver one that went overseas?

"the 36' Apache molds are cut up...."

The 36' molds are still around. Mark will build a 36' if a client wants one.

Eric.

Feel free to step right up, and plunk down a few hundred thou. I'm not near that excited about keeping a brand alive, though a 41 Apache would be the ultimate boat to me.

Yes, the "original" 36' Apache molds are gone and we probably wont see any more Saccenti 36 Apache's unless they make a new mold...very sad story....

I would assume you're talking about the 36' Commanche's...now rebadged Apache's

Semantics...

Not that I'm aware of....

I think there's more money in re-fabs and making fiberglass parts...

Eric.
This is true, long story short McManus "aquired" the molds (not thru Bob) after the whole trademark debacle...

But, what is true is that you'll never be able to buy an authentic Saccenti Built 36' or 28'.
