Default 43'-46' Carolina boat reccomendations?

Looking for a 43'-46' carolina convertable. From 2000 to newer or possibly a boat in progress where the buyer bailed. Ive looked at all the regulars but want to see what else is out there.

MMP,

Get ready to be avalanched by builders and their customers! Please look at the following website.

Pat Harrison builds a 39 footer that can also be built larger to fit your needs. I have been on the "Carolina Magic" shown on his website and after experiencing that I may not be able to go on anything smaller. Good Luck!

I think Jarrett Bay has been trying to sell a partially built 43' hull that someone bailed on at least a year ago.

EDIT: Just realized you were looking for a convertible... this is an express.

will Spencer build a convertible that small? Will any custom builders these days? All I have heard in the recent past is how it's not economically feasible to build a 45', for almost the same $$$ you can build a low 50's and have more room. It doesn't make much sense to me, but I'm not a boatbuilder so I don't know.

Not a carolina hull, but Judge Yachts will custom build on the 42 Jersey mold they have.

Boy, That Harrison 39' sure has nice lines. Less like an old Carolina hull with too much flare/tumblehome and more like a Florida boat. Nice shear

Not many recent carolina convertables in that size range that I can recall... maybe a couple of Alex Willis boats out there around 45'. Most builders would say that it's just plywood and paint... they can build you a 48'-53' boat for about the same money and it will handle better and not be so cramped. If you are bent on that size range maybe go look for a 46'-47' Davis that's been repowered. Hope you don't have to run down-sea too often.

CMP, think you mean the Paul Spencer IPS express boat right??
Also forgot to mention that Shearline built a ~37' convertable day boat a few years back... it has been for sale off and on for a while.

Capps is a great boat to buy in the 40ish to 50ish range.

you can also go not Carolina but same as above and have a look at Gamefisherman from Florida
