Default Weaver Boatworks?

Is Jim Weaver boatworks still around? Their website has been down for a while and was wondering if anybody here knows if they're still making boats? They have some of the prettiest sportfishers on the market in my opinion. Thanks!

Yes they are still around. I have to agree about them being some of the prettiest boats around. My buddy just found these guys in a magazine. I have never seen one up close, but they are pretty in pictures. They also have similar lines to the Weaver boats.

Yeah, I love the lines of a Bayliss too. Could be a tough decision. I'm looking for a boat that can eat up what the gulf of mexico offers. 3-5' seas at no more than 4-6 seconds. Talk about chop. Not sure how some of those flat-bottom Carolina boats can handle it. I liked the hull design of the weaver and 13 degree deadrise i believe sounds pretty nice. Need to find out the Bayliss and Paul Spencer deadrise. But those three are in the final running. I really like the 54' Spencer, nice looking sportfisher with I hope a really great ride.

Their site works.

I'd look at Vikings too. You can be assured of their quality.

Old Biddie,

Thanks a million. Apparently they changed websites and my google wouldn't pick up the new site. Appreciate it!

I have a weaver. It's the 6th sport boat I have had. The ride is superb, like all Carolina boats it has limited interior volume compared to Florida style boats. But the ride is excellent. Comparing g it to a Bayliss makes no sence. The equlvilant Bayliss will cost at least twice what any other boat will cost...and it will b worth it if u can afford the tariff. I can't. But the ride is as good as any in the industry and better than most, and the innovation, attention to detail, and over the top execution make it, almost literally, not a boat, but a piece of sea worthy fine furniture with science fiction features. It has no peer.

Check out F&S as well. That design softens steep chop like no other

^ The F&S design is basically an enormous Seacraft hull.

Default I have a friend with a weaver in the Finnish stages. What a boat.

Unbelievable workmanship. I hear he is very busy. That tells you a weaver is a sought after boat. My good friends boat will cruise in the lower 40 Knot area I am told.
