You don’t see many new conchs being built because they are extremely expensive.. Approximately $175k standard with 300’s.. that’s before add ons, electronics, trailer, etc... could quickly hit $250k+

Another THT thread heads the wrong direction....

There are some photos of a 2019 27 Conch being built on this page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fishboat/ Photos were taken on Monday June 17

FYI It is Whitewater not White Water!

Conch are awesome boats, built solid as they come. All the boats OP are considering were in consideration for me too but I just put a deposit on a Conch 27. Just to many reasons to list why but in summary Conchs are to the CC world what the elite Sportfish boats (mostly built in NC) that are built by a family owned business that has not bought into the hype of having to mass produce boats to maximize the bottom line. They keep it small with high end employees they treat right and take pride in what they do. Wish I would have discovered this company beforehand (though I have known about them for a long time). After a 1/2 dozen factory visits I have learned that they are all about quality and let their boats speak for themselves (simple formula), they got my money, not even a reservation in mind abut that.

Best of luck OP!

Many think about it, but really never put their money where their mouth is. I think people knowing I worked Commercial, Thought I did not take care of it. Just the opposite, I made sure it was tip top. People think because you have a license to sell your catch you tear everything up.
I don't fish anymore then some recreational people do. I just have a license to sell what I get. Helps pay for some of the expenses. I only had one serious call. And that individual still could not believe it when he was standing right in front of the boat.

One thing That steered me away from Conch at the time 2011. When I began the build of the WW. And believe me I really Like the Conch also, The R & R version. And again these are my personal thoughts. Was the fuel tank setup at that time. Not sure if anything has changed. But the tanks where 100% sealed "0" access. If you wanted to reach or fix anything down there, Start cutting. A lot of investment to start cutting deck and then refinishing. The inside of the boats where finish in Al-grip. So that's not just rolled on gel coat. Its expensive.

Did someone say they build "custom" boats and then mention Sailfish??🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Owned a 2660 I bought new for 9 years. Good boat but a mid tier production boat with some sloppy work.

Add another 3 or 4 feet. Boat will sit on the lift behind your house so why not go bigger.
