Default VanDam boats on Direct TV HDTV

Anyone watching HD Theater on Direct TV, channel 281.

They are building a custom 30' wood boat build by Van Dam Builders in MI, very sweet looking ride and real American Craftsman that take pride in their work

Here is their web site, GREAT looking boats

Is it just one show or a series?

I saw the show last night, beautiful boat. Although the motors that they were showing looked to have superchargers on them, then they announced the motors were 300hp each, and they looked as if they installed non-S/C'ed motors, it was BEAUTIFUL though.

Yea, I saw this show a while back and was watching in awe the whole hour. That boat was amazing.

That's the boat they documented being built and the host was one of the fellas from This Old House.

I had it DVR'd and watched it 2 or 3 times.

Bee-utiful!!

I really like this one, makes me rethink the Hinkley Picnic boat when I hit the lottery.


I think we're going to see more of these custom type one-offs thanks to technology advances.
