Ready to build a new boat.
I think I'm ready to have my first new performance boat built. Ive had a few different boats over the past few years and looking to have my first new boat built. Im looking for simple 33 to 38 with 525s.
What are your thoughts. All my options are open. Kinda leaning to Apache.
How long does it take to have a new one completed?

i think you are a little late for a new apache but if all options are open i,d look at not sure if they will still be building boats since mike,s passing but id find out if i was in the market for a new one.nortec also would be a good choice.

I thought you were selling your 37 AT because of other interests and a lack of time to use it????

It depends on how custom and which manufacturer as to how long it will take. Probably looking at 250k plus for new custom built and 4-8 months depending on the builder.

A new apache? That would shock the boating world and would be my choice. Have always said if the funds were ever there for a new boat it will be a apache and not a rebuilt one.

Saber Marine is builing a new 34 as we speak. you could pick all options still.
An apache w 525's would be hard to get seeing neither exist anymore

The HP 525 is available on a limited timeframe if I recall correctly. Very soon it will be NLA.. I might be wrong currently but the last time I was told around summertime you could still get one.

I just looked on the Mercury Racing website and the 525 is not listed so maybe all gone now. I will find out 4 sure on Monday.

What will Macmanus build ?

tfarmer 11-01-2014 07:58 PM

I was sure Mcmanus was building them?? I'll have to call the number on the wed site. When did they stop building the 525. What is replacing it?

You should build a 10 meter Fountain with a pair of 600sc`s , Stellings and a pair of #5`s.
