Default Laveycraft Status

Just a honest question. What is the status with Laveycraft? I know one of the brothers went a different route and they were or did relocate to a smaller shop, but lately there has been no activity. Saw some post on the other forum that made it sound like Laveycraft had closed shop. Just curious if there is any truth to this. I have had my heart set on getting one sooner or later, but would hate to hear they had closed up.

Alway's been a big fan of Laveycraft and they have some great models.

maybe checking in a River Dave's place will get you more responses.

That was where I saw a post indicating they had shut down. I have had good luck reaching Dave and Lavey Jr over here so thought I would ask directly.
Thanks.

Chris told me they are shut down for now but has some plans to bring some bigger models back in the future....
My opinion.... the V bottom days are gone for now...(Lavey built so many awesome V's) who knows maybe they come back like the outboards have done.... Lavey never had a firm hold on the deck boat market which friggen exploded in the last 10years....
I wish him and fam the best and I can't wait to see what he's involved in right now come to the market.

I know of a few manufacturers that are having issues with getting resins, due the Texas big freeze this past winter, and have temp. closed doors....

Lavey Craft has closed its doors for now. When Chris will open back up, I cannot tell you because I do not know. He has retained all the molds and assets so not all is lost and his passion for boats and Lavey Craft is still 100% there!

Hes gotten a lot of interest in builds for 24s and 2750s. If anybody wants contact info to reach him for work on your boat or for new build inquiries please email [email protected]

Sad to hear, but that is what I was afraid of. I wonder what it would take to convert the 29 into a twin outboard center console? Those seem to sell like hotcakes.
