A Massachusetts entrepreneur has launched a company that is remanufacturing Blackfins, using the deep-vee hulls to build a New England-style inboard express cruiser. The Manchester 29 debuted at the New England Boat Show in February.
Maverick Boat Group, known for Maverick, Hewes, Pathfinder and Cobia fishing boats, has launched a 28-foot dual console geared toward family boating. The Cobia 280 has all the elements for a comfortable day on the water, says group president Scott Deal.
Scout’s new 380 LXF bridges the gap between the 350 LXF and the 420 LXF in the builder’s fleet of sportfishing center consoles. In addition to fishing offshore, the 380 LXF is ideal for outings with friends and family.
The 50 Cantius from Cruisers Yachts replaces the 48 Cantius — the first model in the line, introduced seven years ago. The Wisconsin builder says this is an improved second-generation express coupe with a third stateroom, a galley-up saloon and a larger cockpit.
The Gulfstream 52 combines the 360-degree deck space of a center console with the benefits of a pilothouse boat, such as weather protection, air conditioning and heat. “Center consoles just keep getting bigger, and there are some great ones being built, but most have a layout that’s been used for decades,” says company founder and CEO Hunt James. “We’ve come up with a unique alternative.”
