Default New Hull

Talked with Sutphen today about a 38' hull. They told me that they just pulled a new hull out of the mold... Super trick stuff...

Any pictures or new details about the 38? I think that sounds promising.

Default Sutphen's new hull

Saw Richies new hull. It will now be full 40ft.The bottom is still the same except for a small step at transom.The big news is the trick transom he has done.It is "pod" like and extends back from where flat transom ended.Engine compartment big enough to stagger engines or use shafts to get drives tight He's playing with surface drive on this one.Deck has three arrangements and will be a departure from "classic" Sutphen.

Sorry ,
No pics of new hull.Not sure Richie wants it out yet,but if he does I will get some.Can't wait to see his finished deck designs.( only saw protoype of aft end)As for the rest he describes it "Windshield will be gone, using wrap around wind deflector and will have scoops and built in swim steps." Never thought I'd see the day!When I worked there he would'nt even allow surface deck cleats....just bow eye and stern rings.

I would have mixed feeling's about a different sutphen, but time's they are a chang'in.
Hope to be the proud owner of a classic sutphen soon.

Hey "J"
Know what you mean. Never thought I'd say that as I thought Richie was staying in the past but I have come to think of his style as "Classic". He is not a follow the crowd guy and not afraid to try something.

I would think that after building such a bullet proof boat for so long he would be thinking about some way to better the hull, if that is at all possible.
But the sutphen design sure make's me stand up and take notice, every time I see one.
