Thats the PLUG being built. The mold will be built from th PLUG and then the first hull popped/

Some companies make a running PLUG for testing.

This was announced back in June, I posted on our website on the "News" page back then...Introduction target is Miami show next February but think Lauderdale 2019 more likely? Long ways to go and they want it right. Beam is to be 15' with the 55' length. Target pricing is $1-1.4MM. As of June, six slots were sold including one for one of my clients. Thinking trip/quad Yamaha 425's will be a nice set up. This high-end CC market is red hot right now...
N2theblue, Rico2 and ed d like this.

What would you call 'moderate' power. It will need quad 350's minimum. Given a well spec'd 42 is 700+, this rig will surely be entry level 900k and well over 1M with all the fruit. Unless they use some of this length for a real practical purpose such as overnighting for 4 in comfort, it's cool but I can't see the point.

Very cool, built on a jig. At least there a few left who know how to build a boat.

The 53 HS is around 1.2-1.3m their 65 is 3m+ I figure at 55 YF should be in the 7 fig range. Like the HS I can't imagine this thing will be set up as a fishing machine it will have forward seating, a nice bunk below, a/c, bunny pad, two rows of helm seats etc.
