Default What happened to Kryptonite?

Are they still building boats? There was a thread a few months ago that they were moving their facility. I see their website has been down for awhile too.

They just cranked out a 29' raceboat. There is a thread over on S&F.

The new race boat is called SuperHeat and was rigged by Joey Imprescia @ EastCoast Marine......

The last I heard, going back to this winter, they still did not have a new production facility set up. I loved my 29' and would have loved to see them make another 39' or a 36' sport model. A couple years ago when I owned my 29, I talked to Kirk about building either a 39 or a 36 sport deck but it never happened. The one 39 Hot Rock runs some great numbers and they built a 36 that was a center console. We talked about building a staggered 36 or 39 with a stretched 29' style deck. That would have been a kick-azz boat. I hope they do make a comeback because they had some real nice looking and performing boats. My 29 ran with the best of them in most conditions.

Tom A their 27/29 did run well in big water! I remember watching Typhoon battle Activator in F1 back in 2002(I think) and both those boats were VERY impressive!

Tom, I remember seeing that boat in the classifieds for a while...I was following it a little, even though I wasn't ready to pull the trigger on something. I hope they keep them in production!!
