The Robin 24 was originally sold and marketed by Florida SunCoast Marine (http://www.fsmarine.com/boats.html
) but the hulls were actually made by Accurate Fiberglass in the Ft. Pierce area. Accurate sold a number of these hulls direct to customers and SunCoast subsequently dropped the hull from its lineup due this backdoor selling issue.
The Robin is based upon the original T-craft 24 mold. The hulls were very well made and there are a number around especially down in the Keys.
Accurate apparently sold the molds to Mike Vernese of UglyBoatInc.com. Mike splashed a few of these hulls called Outcast 24. Vernese made a few interesting versions of this hull including a flats boat type layout with a 4' casting deck at the transom with built in livewells and storage and a nearly flush front casting deck. Talkj about fish ability on the flats for a charter guide.
Scott Schoof now has the mold or has made one from a plug. Not sure about this transition. He has various youtube videos (search t-craft boatworks).
These boats are stout as hell. The Accurate Fiberglass Robin 24 version was available as a "no wood" construction hull. They were foam filled and had all sorts of options available including fresh water tanks, 90 gal fuel cells, Custom front bunks, upgraded resin finish, etc....
Scott Porta has one as previously mentioned and it was said to do in excess of 50mph with a raced tuned 225 outboard.
On a seperate note this thread made mention of a boat made in Orlando. I believe it is in reference to the hull made by Mike Martin of Martin Manufacturing. It is marketed as the 240 bay. This is the old Trevco 24 mold by Trevor Hansen. The hull is more like the old morgans or aquasport. Very upswept at the bow with huge walk on top gunwales. This boat is very nice. Its history had a bump in the road about 5-7 years ago when an unscrupulous builder out of Tampa purchased the molds from Trevco and was building an inferior product, ripping people off and running his business into the ground. Under this tenure the boat was marketed as the Boca Grande Skiff. I would stay away from the models made during this time period unless you can get a good inspection of the boat construction. Mike Martin is building a great boat and answers his phone!
I have lots of pics of these boats if anyone is interested.
