Didn't they just pull hull #3? That's 8 months to get the 3 existing hull's out the door plus 4 more. Seems reasonable to me. Admittedly, I don't build boats and have actually never had a boat built.

Is there a reason you are hating on this boat and company so much? If you don't like it, don't click on the thread.

The internet would be a much better place if people followed the old adage "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all"

If trolls lived by the golden rule, how would they exercise the anonymity afforded to them by the interwebs?

They can make hulls pretty fast, could probably do a hull a week, I am guessing here. The issue is taking the hull and making a completed boat takes a lot of time and resources.

They definitely have an aggressive forecast, but I would be nervous about them ramping up production that fast... that being said if I was actually buying one of these I would be having some long conversations to assure they have made provisions for maintaining quality and attention to detail. If they are able to successfully ramp up production that fast there was some serious forethought and engineering that went into the logistics of this build. I look forward to being as impressed with the company as I am with the boat!

They have a massive shop. JB also hired a full time sales person (Ryan Harrington) so that he can concentrate on his passion. Building works of ART!

I'm not hating at all. You are jumping to conclusions. I said earlier in this same thread she looks very sexy. I have a good friend at the front of the line with deposit in early.

The new cayo 26 looks fantastic and I am sure will perform great.

I'm just a realist as seen by previous estimates falling behind. And experience from other builds. It' going to take time to ramp up the entire build process and work out the kinks. And will be worth the wait. So don't get your panties in a wad

Once the kinks get worked out of the first few boats, 2-3 per month in a shop this size seems perfectly reasonable. Was told it takes 6 weeks to build a Calcutta and they build around 15 per year. Smaller shop with plans to add another building to increase production and hopefully reduce wait times.

I believe a Calcutta is 12+ weeks, start to finish. Mine is being built as we speak, I don’t expect to take delivery until mid April. My guess is Cayo will be at least 12+ weeks per full build as well (once they get down to that). If you start wanting to do custom touches that involve other outside shops (example: LineX pipework and boxes) you can start creating some big bottle necks.

So if it takes 4 months x 2 hulls per month he could need enough guys and room to work on 8 hulls at the same time plus the molds if all work is done in house, mas o menos?

I am thinking, just based on what I see at Calcutta, that he will need to be working on at least 12 boats at a single time get close to pushing out 3 per month. Plus he will need space and staff to do warranty work, boat repairs, and general Cayo service.

Good choice on the seachest and hooker pumps....only way to go! Now it makes sense I know Ryan through a few mutual friends and he’s been pushing the Cayo hard the last few weeks on social media.

No idea but the bottom line is he is. It’s not a bad thing. He is doing his job if he was hired as a sales rep. Ryan’s a good guy and I enjoy following his updates on social media.

I followed Ryan on Instagram because he had a Calcutta he would infrequently post photos of. Now I don't see any pictures of the Calcutta and crazy amounts of the Cayo.

if the Cato wasn't so damn sexy, it would be annoying

At what point is the market saturated to the point that "new builds" slow down and economies of scale come into play? More requests/deposits, lower costs can be had. Fewer requests due to builder saturation and everyone already having what they want/need, and costs rise and no longer become sustainable?

OR - does everyone have that much money to just switch boats every few years? :D

Jokes aside, great build, JB and fam are great - maybe in 5 years I'll be in the market for one.

Just hang around and wait for the downturn, remember 2009? huge CC's and 1 ton pickups for sale for 25% of the value a year before. Keep some cash handy and you can turn out very well.

I have yet to slow down Freeman(85 plus boats) , Calcutta and or Cayo! They have the pipework sprayed and back at the factory. I just hit them up for pics...
