No this is not from the 47'

The molds are Nu Teck molds that where designed and built by Bobby Saccenti for a now defunct company called Nu Tek

We have since acquired the molds and with Bobby Saccenti (part of the Chief Powerboat team) and have fine tuned them

We have created additional new molds (note the engine hatch and dash consoles) to give the old school look a new and current styling

The Chief 28 savage on the chief website is a picture of an active thunder savage. Will both companies be making the same boat with different options ala GMC/Chevy or is AT discontinuing production of it?

If you look in the A.T. section, It says that all A.T.'s will now be called Chiefs... The 28 32 and 37 are original A.T. and the 42 and 47 are B.S. built now defunct Nu teck / Apache hulls, A.T. and Chief merged and now all boats are being called Chiefs...
