Default Crevalle 26 Bay Boat Build

Got word from Matt at Crevalle the boat is starting on Monday and should have some pics to share this week. We are extremely excited to take delivery, I looked at and consider a full range of bay boats before deciding on Crevalle. Looking forward to inshore/ offshore weather permitting in the Carolinas. I have spent the last 18 years every weekend on a MasterCraft at lake Wylie with my kids so this is a new brave world for us. I love seeing peoples builds of all types of boats and thought I would share. More to come this week. Matt send me those shots.

Nice! Mine has the same color scheme on the hull, but I have the gray pipe work for the t top. Do you have any pictures of the new helm design?

Looks beautiful! How is the boat doing after some use? The changes on the helm from the 2016 and early 2017 models is nice (the old one you could not fit dual 12" screens)

We love the boat, could not be happier. I have fished it super Skinny and have been as far as 22 miles off shore, handles like a champ. Took it out this weekend as the tide was going out and the wind was kicking, based on my wife's reaction going out the inlet it was super sporty, I told her to relax and the boat handled the 6 footers with no issues. Not sure I will make that timing a habit. Lol.

Great to hear! Just finalized our deal on a 26 Bay today! Doing paperwork tomorrow and then picking it up in a week or two. 6 footers?? Wow thats pretty good! A hope of ours is to be able to go from Miami to Bimini twice a year for a couple of weeks. We know a lot of people who do it on Sportsman and Sea Hunt bay boats...figured this boat should be able to do it no problem.

like an old fish tale, seriously the inlet was nasty. Ocean was not nearly that bad2-3 really felt like 3-4 that day. I have only had it out on days they call for 2-3 and it handles it with no problems. You really can tell a difference being in a boat vs being on top of the boat like many Bay boats. I think you will be very pleased with your decision. My wife and kids love hanging on the front cushions.
