So if you need a Gulf Coast guinea pig, pls let me know!!!
Since Barrett hasn't updated in a while....
Was heading to Captains Locker on Saturday and saw this beauty, my head spun around and I had to snap a pic on my way back home
I know I know... It's been crazy busy. We're getting ready to start on hull 5 this week. I'll post an update soon with some of the things we've been working on
That's awesome! I hope there is a WA somewhere in the update.
Glad to here you're busy! Really happy about that. I'll just have to be patient. God, how sweet it would be to be able to walk into that Stan Miller office and plunk down a pile of cash and walk out with the keys to that beautiful hull #1 boat.
sweet, thats right by my house ill go take a peek
Prepare for boner
Alright, finally a picture update. We've been pedal down hard at it every single day. We're getting ready to launch hull 3 in the next two weeks and we have two hulls right after it ready to move down the assembly line. Hull 3 is the Picante Sportfishing boat and will be making its way to Cabo in early September. Hull 4 is a whisper grey hull with a black bottom and will probably end up here in Long Beach. Hull 5 is going to be a flag blue hull that is going to be heading to Hyannis Massachusetts to our dealer Oyster Harbor Yacht Sales.
We've made some refinements based on what we learned with having the boat in the water and putting 40 hours of use on it. We cleaned up the wiring to Cabo standards and really spent some time refining our tooling so everything has a place.
I changed around the plumbing arrangement aft and decided to redo the way the deck drains. This drain will get a sea foam cover and internal rubber flapper to keep water from coming in.
We finished tooling a shelf for a windlass. Hulls 3 and 4 get windlasses. The anchor goes through the bow instead of on deck and we're putting a few innovative touches in place.
After a lot of great feedback from the shows, I decided to modify our aft console. We cut down the height of the seat 3" and widened the rod holder space by a half inch to accommodate the Mate Series rod holder/ cup holder combos. We also added a little more radius to the aft end of the console, it looks really sharp!
The Canvas Guy Felipe made an unbelievable enclosure. I love it when people come on the boat and don't even realize there is an enclosure. It's one piece, slides in on a track system and looks incredible. No view obstruction at all, it really turned out nice!
Around the shop hull 3 is getting ready to head out the door. This boat is getting a STAINLESS t top with two aft support legs. The aft legs aren't really necessary but since this is going to be a charter boat I wanted to add another hand hold for customers and a little rigidity to the package.
Hull 3 dash
We nicknamed hull 1 project snowflake. Pretty soon we're gonna turn the snow yellow because we've decided to paint the hullsides fighting lady yellow. Its going to look really good when its finished!
The liner is in and we are starting plumbing this week.
Grey and black hull 4
One thing I can honestly say is that this boat is an absolute blast to drive. Every time I have been on it I have had a huge smile on my face. It runs so damn well. We made a little video of the boat a few weeks back, here are some shots from the video and the video as well.

And for all those that said this boat is too pretty to put fish on it... it isn't. On the way down to SD for the SD boat show I stopped on a paddy and hooked 10 of these things, kept 4 for the guys and released the rest. The fishboxes are perfect, kept ice all day and the fish were popsicles when I took them out to fillet them. Such an awesome feeling catching a few fish on a boat that you've worked your ass off to make. The employees were really stoked on the fillets too.
The smile you have every time you get on this thing!
A W E S O M E !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Full fn circle. Tremendous.
Sweet Ride. Congrats Barrett!
You guys are on a whole different level....amazing skill and craftsmanship, absolutely beautiful boats!
Not sure if I should qualify this boat as semi-custom or 3/4-custom
It really is one of the.. if not the nicest 33 cc I've seen and I'm sure it looks even better in person.
I love that the boat has a curved bow instead of a pointy one.
Reminds me of the Scarborough yachts.
I do have a question about your wiring..
Do you do all the wiring and rigging yourself or do you order a custom harness ?
Lastly, I wish you the best of luck with this endeavor.
You really have a one of a kind boat there.
Thank you for the compliments and your support. We do all wiring and rigging in house. Really the only things we don't do in house are the cushions and coamings, everything else is done entirely in house.
Rad photo of the donuts. Killer boats too.
Keeps getting better all the time.
Been following this since the beginning, so it's been exciting to see an idea become a reality. Really, really nice work! It's quite evident that this is your passion. Congratulations.
Absolutely beautiful!! I like the snowflake too!! All white with black pipe work and a little black accent on vinyl is a clean look - IMO.....
Barrett, are y'all going to make an East Coast show over the winter? Or just too busy cranking them out at this time?
How many have you finished? How fast is the process now that molds are done?
