MORE POWER! Yes that's right folks...I believe there was an article in one of the powerboating magazines about this boat....4-Sterlings paired to #6 dry sumps in a 50' cat....they are hoping for 200MPH! Now that's some serious hardware!

The original prototype for their 75' motor yacht. Should be another work of art!

I had asked a few builders that I know about the leaving the boat in the mold for a long time. The answers that I got were interesting. Most said it made zero difference, and explained to me why some manufacturers do so (this included a guy that does leave them in the mold for a average of one - one and a half months.

Anyhow their shop is just plain amazingly clean for a builder and that no doubt says a lot about their attitude towards thier boats and customers.

Thanks for the Pics, everytime I go up there to check out the progress of my new 36 I take my camera but never seem to get any good shots.

This company really seems to have there act together. I has been a pleasure to work with them while having the new boat built.

Did you visit the new engine shop? Holly crap!!! That place is spotless.

Default time in mold

you do the math if they leave there 36 in the mold for two mouthes that means they could only build 6 boats ayear unless they have more than one mold so 20 boats a year wuold need at least 3 molds i dont think they have that many molds they tell you what you want you want to hear i heard the same story when i bought my boat good luck with the new 36
