Default New 18' Kustom Cat

I just pulled the trigger on a new 18’ Kustom Cat Powerboat. It is time to make the mini a little bit bigger, as this will be replacing the Cougar Cub. It should be going in the mold in a few weeks. I will post some pictures as the project progresses.

Tantrum ,
It started to be Designed off the 15’6” OE but as the design progressed it was soon determined that the time was now to make some changes and add some new features. Like, body line, extra strake, moved the step, pointed the sponsons, more freeboard, remove the bussell, all new deck design, and so on. So not much stayed the same. As you can see from these pic’s.

tizbad4 that is awesome. Are you building these hulls in house.
Id be interested in getting some info from you. Do you have an option list and pricing? Were can I see one? Are there any in the NY/NJ area?
