Default Wish this forum would grow some legs

This has to be one of my favorite bay boats. Absolutely love the layout and functionality not to mention the second station. Although it's a little out of my price range, at the moment, I would still like to see what you guys are cranking out. Revive this forum and keep us up to date with what's going on at Crevalle.

Well we are head first into boat show season. We started things off in Houston, Atlanta, Charlotte County, Stuart, Naples, and last weekend was Jacksonville. Looks like we will not be in Orlando this weekend but then we will be off to Miami and after Miami we have Savannah.

Our new 26 Open is being very well received and our production lead time continues to grow. Boats ordered today will likely be delivered in May. If you know anyone looking to order a Crevalle I would not suggest waiting. As we get further into boat show season the orders roll in and lead time increases.

Default 24 Bay Details

To elaborate on my recent big boy purchase, see the dirty details below:

24 Bay with Merc 300
Stormcloud Grey Sides with Black Motor
Hardtop with matching underside
Forward Cushions
SeaDek Helm Pads
Tabs and Trolling Motor Pre-rig
Underwater Lights

Electronics:
Lowrance HDS12 Gen 3
Upgraded JL Stereo System
Undecided on fixed or handheld VHF

Future Upgrades:
Motorguide Xi5 with Lowrance Gateway
Power Pole 10ft blade

Feel like I could ramble on and on about my plans for it, but still hashing it all out now. Will start a build thread soon, maybe can get some pictures of it coming down the line (hint, hint, any of the Crevalle folks on here).

Glad to see some action here.
Any plans to put photos, specs, etc of the 26 Open on the crevalle website? Any changes in the 2017 bay models compared to the 2016's? I have a 2016 26 Bay. Love the boat!

Default 26 Open Information

Yes we are planning to have information on the website. Since the boat is so new we haven't had the opportunity to take any professional photography yet. I did just place some snapshots on the color combinations page yesterday. Specs are very similar to the 26 Bay. Same fuel capacity, water capacity, length, beam, HP rating etc....

Cool. I just checked out the pics on the color combination page. The open looks great.
Is there any way I can get that crevalle logo screensaver for my GPS??

This is my first post on the Hull, I ordered a 2017 26 Bay storm cloud grey. Delivery time early to mid March. I am so jacked about this boat, I literally spent 6 months comparing bay boats and this one hands down met all of my families needs.

Do you have a 24 or 26? Curious if you go off shore?

I have a 26. I just got it late last summer, haven't taken it offshore yet but I plan to fish a lot of snapper out of it this summer. I used to take my old 21 Rinalli 20 miles out for snapper, so I don't anticipate any issues with the new boat. I also try to pick my days as best I can.

I love inshore fishing but want to explore offshore on good days.

Default New Crevalle 26 Bay

So I took delivery of the 26 last week and spent Spring Break figuring it out. Fished in the creeks around Holden Beach in skinny water and then took it 22 miles off shore twice. Boat handles great. Big blue chomper and a large Speckled Trout.
