What do you all want to know? I live 15 minutes away from Cayo.

Maybe they have all the orders that they can handle for now and are hunkered down building boats. Wasn’t there another company that built a badass 26’ bay boat with a long waiting list that over promised and under delivered all the way to its demise? I’m guessing that Cayo wants no part of that plan.

My guess is that anyone who is actually serious in buying has called or have stopped by their shop to see for themselves.

As of now they dont need to post pics to advertise. They have orders to fill instead.

I can’t believe there are no overall pics/video walk through or any running pics with a fully rigged boat yet. Like I said, it really shouldn’t be this hard. Not to be negative but I am starting to join some of the others questioning what is going on.
yeah, but how long has the 36 prolwer been out and how many pics/videos/performance data are available?

You've been watching that hot chick across the room for an hour. You're getting more excited by the minute. When that magical moment happens...as she's walking your way...you see that big Adam's apple and 5:00 shadow. = this thread.

All I'm pointing out is there has been no updates.... so they might have gone belly up as far as we know. :

I guess you couldn’t find the Prowler website for pictures, layout and basic information. https://www.renaissanceprowler.com/prowler-36

I also guess you missed this thread. Layout, completed boat pictures and completed boat performance etc. Prowler 36 "Dawn of a new model"

And this one. 2018 36 prowler build

I have owned a few cats unlike many posters and I am simply interested in information about a new offering in the cat world just like I am in the Eastwood, Tideline etc. Unfortunately the fanboys are so sensitive that they get butt hurt over any post that mentions anything other than that this boat (for which there is no real information) is the best thing that ever existed. Geez.

So no one is going to take fusion up on his offer to go by the shop and get whatever information THT requires? It's just a lot more fun to piss and moan.

Sure, Fusion we would love for you to swing by and take a bunch of pics. Nothing in particular on my part at least but just pics in general. Even better would be a running video. Also ask them what their plans are for future larger offerings. I'd be curious to hear. I think they hit this boat out of the park just based on aesthetics, lay out, and what appears to be quality materials. I wish them nothing but extreme success and I look forward to living vicariously through anyone who will post a build thread and their fishing adventures on their new Cayo Cat

They just posted a new pic on Facebook. Sweet boat. I’ll attempt to attach the pic:

yeah, I followed those threads pretty closely....saw huge gaps in coverage, 6 months to get any sort of performance numbers out of hull #1...no real numbers from the merc boat yet...ect...

Numbers are forthcoming I’m sure....until then I’ll just watch the Zealots and the Haters duke it out

If I were to use my common sense I’d say these guys built hull #1 and have been doing some testing before cranking out hulls. Would that be so crazy? Here is #1 sitting next to a 31 Contender & some upgraded stickers and paint.

Thank goodness they changed the red coloring on the engines. For some reason that was throwing it off for me. Boat looks great.

The guy in Louisiana has repowered to the Merc 150’s and is getting better speed, power and fuel efficiency. His quote was”If the Suzuki’s were 140 hp these Mercury 150’s are really 250s!)

We sea trialed the demo boat yesterday and was very impressed. Fit and finish was top notch and really happy with the layout and things that was thought about to incorporate in.

Performance was also very impressive and yesterday was pretty sloppy with this storm coming to Swfl.

I do know they have plenty of deposits now and do not want to overpromise and under deliver. Very excited about the boat
